Hi All,

I thought that this skipper was so distinctive that at least genus would be attainable. I haven't had any luck though. Any ideas appreciated. It was a ItororĂ³ Lodge, Nova Friburgo, Rio de Janeiro.

Thanks,

Rich

It's Vettius ploetzii. You can see a lot of our butterflies from my 2 month trip to southeast Brazil last summer (their summer, January - March 2015) on my flickr site -

I've sorted the photos by country and family, so it's easy to scan through 2 pages of skippers, for example.
thanks,
