I found this flying around my adeniumns yesterday. The first photo was quite by accident - and is rather good - serendipity! I think it is probably a taxon of the genus Autochton but have no idea of the species. The flower it is attempting to feed on is the coleus, which used to be called Coleus blumei but the botanists have seen fit to change its name to Solenostemon scutellarioides, I do wish the botanists would leave well known names alone and not change them to something almost unpronounceable.

Hola: Interesting shot of the Autochton in flight. I cant tell for sure which one this is because there are no apical spots showing and the ventral hindwing pattern is a bit hazy. My two choices are lonipennis or zarex. Saludos Ricardo
