Hi, a friend of mine has been to Cuba last October and photographed a few butterflies. We would be very grateful if somebody can help to ID them.

This is the first one. Taken by Francisco Rodriguez in Holguin, Cuba, on October the 22th 2012.

Thanks!!

Hola: I think this could be the Golden-headed Scallopwing, Staphylus ceos. Saludos Ricardo

This is a very late reply as I have only just been looking at this thread. It is in fact a male Burca concolor - as confirmed by Rayner Nunez a leading lepidopterist in Cuba. May I use this photo on my Butterfliesofcuba website please? And could you give me some more information on where exactly it was seen as we will be staying in that area in November. Perhaps you would be kind enough to contact me via the contact form on my website http://www.butterfliesofcuba.com/contact.html
Many thanks, Tim
