Very bright--not sure if this is the correct species but it is a Junonia
abandoned pasture with north facing slope quite common in this one place! Also spotted mud puddling on pasture edges.
Junonia sp., it is either Junonia genoveva or Junonia evarete. From both are reports from Brazil and both looks "identical". Many of them are wrongly IDed and there are many scientific papers about these ones, however, all with conflicting results. The fact, that the underside of the antennae/tips might be used for separation is not accepted by all authors. Personally I can't separate them and if you look at both my links, you might know why...Evarete: http://tolweb.org/onlinecontributors/app...Genoveva:http://www.pybio.org/wp-content/uploads/...To be on the safe side I personally would go with Junonia sp. with mentioning that it could either be Junonia evarete or Junonia genoveva.
