Unfortunately this is not Urbanus proteus. The spots are different. It is certainly an Urbanus sp., I will try to get closer...

That is correct this one has a big range and is possible to be found in all México, you have a small window on top of your icon photo that say "edit this spotting"
Then you can add the correct location on your map also add the scientific and common name :)

Hi Gerardo, the locations are not my current location as it is showing. They are in Mexico!
