Not really an easy one. I think it is Hamadryas februa, although you have also Hamadryas julitta, which looks very similar to Februa, but some spots are different.

You're welcome! I'm sure you'll get an ID here. We have quite a few users highly knowledgeable on neotropical butterflies.

Hi ScarlettKaletKale! This is not a moth but a butterfly (Cracker, genus Hamadryas I think). Someone more familiar with the area will be able to give you a more accurate ID.
