Picture was taken near the WildSumaco Biological Station.
I am sure it is the Ecuadorian subspecies Dismorphia lewyi leonora and it is the male.There are not many pictures of it, but these ones are a perfect match:http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/ih...http://www.sangay.eu/ficha-principale.ph...The ID Dismorphia lewyi leonora is safe.
The subspecies may vary since there are others that are very similar, but it is definitely a Mimic-White. I am going to stick with the species. Thank you bayucca! :)
Pieridae (!), Dismorphinae, Dismorphia lewyi leonora, male. Very nice one!!http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dismorphia...http://www.sangay.eu/ficha-principale.ph...
