Thank you for your correction, bayucca! Sometimes, I don´t know the English common names , because I don´t need them. My error comes from here:

Common name would be Lysimnia Tiger or in your case of the subespecies Elisa it would be "Sweet Oil Tiger". The Olivencia Tigerwing is another genus/species: Forbestra olivencia.
You probably mixed it up...
