False Erato

Eresia lansdorfi

Description:

Esta é a borboleta Castanha Vermelha Heliconius erato (Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae, Heliconiini) Essa daí é uma "Eresia lansdorfi" (antiga "Phyciodes"), uma ninfalídea que mimetiza a "Heliconius", porque esta última é uma borboleta venenosa (se ingerida). Quer dizer, um lindo exemplo de mimetismo batesiano.
