A medium to small butterfly. The forewing was soot black on top and the hind wing was soot black forward and iridescent blue posteriorly. I believe the underside was a drab combination of black and cream colored spots and swirls.
This butterfly was seen on the ground in a clearing alongside a runway in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.
One of the incredible butterflies of the Amazon that shows iridescent blue color.
