Could you help me identify this butterfly?
Our initial attempts to identify which species of butterfly you have photographed so beautifully came up blank, but we can tell you that it is a member of the Brushfooted Butterfly family Nymphalidae. We will post the photo and continue to try to identify it, and we hope our readership will be able to lend us a helping hand with this lovely butterfly’s identity.
Thanks to a comment from Richard Stickney, we now know this is an Orion Butterfly or Stinky Leafwing. We found nice photos showing partially opened and closed wings on OdoLep Ecuador after locating this unnamed image on the Nymphalidae Systematics Group.
