Thank you Maria dB ! And thank you bayucca to attempt to identify the species. It's clearly a Owl butterfly but I imagine you need more detail to identify clearly the specie.
Nymphalidae, Brassolinae, Eryphanis sp.. Unfortunately I can't get closer than the genus, there are too many around and ID is even a bigger nightmare as Iding Caligo species from Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. My closest guess would be Eryphanis zolvizora opimus.
