No, reason for sorry! -idae in the name is the family and -inae is the subfamily:Nymphalidae and Nymphalinae or Heliconinae.Please, check these excellent links for reading more about all this stuff:http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/3133882...http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/3371137...Extremely scientific and extremely funny!http://www.curioustaxonomy.net/index.htm...
Done ! Thank you and sorry I thought it was the genus and not the family
OK, please, remember: Reduviidae should be alone, the word "sp." is only used if you have a genus, like Ricolla sp..
No actually I didn't remember that, it seems to have a smooth body.
Did you remember any spikes on the head and behind the neck??
Thank you bayucca for the ID. Sorry I don't have other shot, I was working, no really the time to take a lot of picture...
Reduviidae, Assassin Bug. Do you have any other shot??
