Augusto, most of the urbanus that I researched have spots or bands on the wings...at the place that I took this picture, there 3 others identical like this one. May be the young ones don't have marks and no long tail ....
Maybe...bayucca could tells us the ID... he is a expert !

Urbanus evona, Maybe?
