Hmm, just found this one:
http://www.heliconius.net/wp-content/upl...
IDed as Narcaea! So yours is probably also a variation/form of Narcaea!?
http://www.heliconius.net/heliconius-3/e...
Looks like being a male, like yours??
Safe ID is Heliconius ethilla, maybe you got another ID or confirmation on facebook? SO maybe Heliconius ethilla narcaea seems to be the right one.

Hi Kel! I think yours is Heliconius ethilla and probably not Heliconius ethilla narcaea, but Heliconius ethilla flavomaculatus. Please, verify and compare!
