could this be Quasimellana myron? I got something very similar at Montezuma, also west slope in the Choco, a bit further south than Tangaras. Juan, did you shoot this when we were there in October? Or did you go back another time?
thanks

I"m thinking this might be Quasimellana servilius, what they call Green Mellana, as compared to Q.myron, called Greenish Myron. Looking at BOA at the specimens, I think the dorsal looks more like servilius, but I could be wrong. They're obviously very similar.
thanks, I may be going to use your nice ventral in our skipper book on Central America, and compare it to the one I shot at Montezuma.
