At a butterfly garden in the mountains of Costa Rica.
Great thank you!
Nymphalidae, Danainae, Ithomiini, Ithomia patilla, male (!). Note the nice "sex patch" between the white stripes on the hindwing. Some type of scent scales for the pheromones, also called androconia.http://butterfliesofamerica.com/ithomia_...
#2 is a different species, please, make a separate spotting of #2, thanks!
