Such a beautiful butterfly, Gilma! Thank you for sharing:)

Thank you so much for the ID, StirredMocha and SarotaBoy.
I tried to see if it was : male or female and just could not figure it out... : (

Thank you so much, SarotaBoy.

I agree with StirredMocha. Similar Chlosyne janais has two cell spots on each forewing. Chlosyne l. lacinia has one or zero according to the book I have (A Swift Guide to the Butterflies of Mexico and Central America).

Thank you so much, StirredMocha, I will look into it.

One of the patches (Chlosyne sp.). Not sure which one but I think perhaps bordered (C. lacinia), which is the most variable species.
