Pteronymia simplex simplex
My first spotting from Costa Rica :) Small butterfly around 5 cm in size with clear wings with orange coloured borders/trimmings on their wings.
Adults range from Mexico through Panama and Colombia. Saw lots of them in one particular part of the mountain, only deep into the forest trails along a river.
Most of the time, they are very skittish like all butterfly but much easier to get close to them to take pictures when they are feeding. They seems to be mostly feeding on bird's droppings :D New Organism to Project Noah
