Altinote ozomene nox
This butterfly looks rater average until it opens it's wings to reveal it's beautiful colors. Looking at the pictures you can see golden dots.
Thank you,Bayucca. I relied on the information of site EOL http://eol.org/pages/156843/overview
I think Irina was not completely wrong, sometimes there are different names. I usually follow BOA as reference library and Lamas has it also as Altinote ozomene nox, formerly Acraea leucomelas.
Thanks for the correction Bayucca and for taking the time to check even though it appears as already identified.
Correct name would be Altinote ozomene nox.http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/im...
;)In beginning I found synonym -Acraea nox http://www.gbif.org/species/110504458
Thanks for the ID, this one is a cutie!
