Thank you Brian. I think it looks very much like the one in that web page, so I'll keep the ID you provided.

Great spotting, Sergio. Check out (Nyceryx alophus ixion) as a possible ID. I found it on this reference:http://www.pybio.org/en/2193/nyceryx/ I'm trying to find a better reference than that.
