Hola Juan: I know the color matches that of nobilis but the large apical band does not. Nobilis has a long white continuous band where as amystis has three separate-looking blobs for a band. Saludos Ricardo

I think Ricardo is right, especially on the band on the FW. Nobilis has a narrower band and more black around the edges, while amystis has 3 different widths on the pale sections. So I agree w/Ricardo. Amystis is more widespread, it gets all the way up to Mexico and to Brazil, while nobilis is just in South America.
