White butterfly with brown outline. It has a red ring behind the head.
Thank you Lauren for the ID and the links.
Your specimen also has thoracic stripes that are not on other pictures of this species. Maybe this is a subspecies for Chiapas? I hope bayucca can have a look at this.
Hi Luis, this one is so beautiful, it was hard to believe at first that it was a Skipper, but the body shape and antennae give it away. None of the species pictures that I found have the red behind the head, a local variation maybe?http://www.backyardnature.net/chiapas/butter02.htmhttp://www.neotropicalbutterflies.com/Si...http://butterfliesofamerica.com/heliopet...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/he...
