Here are links to pictures taken during a fieldtrip in 2010 in the central and western andes.
Hopefully someone can help we identifying these species.
thanks on advance,
Stijn

Hi Stijn,
welcome to the forum. Your Callicore pitheas is correct. Your Caligo is probably right, please send me the photo and I'll look it up when I get home. The Caligos are very difficult from a live ventral. But your 3rd shot is very exciting, I think you're right with the 2nd choice, Eurytides colombus. I've never seen this one, or seen a photo of it. Can you please send me your uncropped high res jpgs, D and V, and please tell me where you found it? The google map is pretty vague. Was it at a reserve? I see it was at 2600m, which is higher than I usually see serville.
thanks!

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the information. I will send you the high resolution pictures of the Caligo and the Eurytides this evening. Nice to see that the Eurytides is interesting.
I took the picture at the lower parts of the Ucumari NP. Close to a place called "El Cedral". I searched a bit and found more correct coordenates:
N 4°42'14,3", W 75°32'14,7" and altitude of 2100m.

Cheers,
Stijn
