Thanks yes this is from Brazil.

To my knowledge Dirce is from Mexico to Argentina, and Annulata is more in the north from Mexico to Ecuador, probably Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela and Guyana. So not in your area.

Great! Thanks for the correction--will adjust. DO both occur in the Mata Atlantica region?

Yes, it is actually Colobura dirce not Coobura annulata. The 3rd dark stripe should be more slim in Annulata.
