Hi All,

This hairstreak was at La Selva Biological Station on April 3, 2016. Any ideas?

Thanks, Rich

It's an undescribed Siderus sp. close to Siderus guapila.

Just had a look at this again because something about my initial id didn't seem quite right. This should be Thereus lutzi, which seems to be known only from Panama at the moment and it seems like the female is unknown(?). I overlooked this one the last time!
