very interesting. It makes me think of a Nisoniades with those strong apical spots, but I suspect that's not right. I'll keep looking.
thanks, nice shot.

Hola Juan: I think this is a Telemiades species. I would bet(not too much) that it is T. squanda. Saludos Ricardo

I agree with Ricardo that it is a Telemiades, how about T.centrites contra? BOA doesn't show a specimen of this subspecies, but it looks similar to the T. centrites. Bernard Hermier thinks it could be in the T.centrites group. Of course, it would be nice to have a ventral, but we can't have everything. I think it's darker than T.squanda.

Hola Juan: I think Kim is correct. The shape of the apical spots look more like centrites as does the dark "scythe" shape. I thought centrites had to have more yellow on the trailing edge of the dorsal hindwing. There seems to be just a hint of it on your bug. Saludos Ricardo
