Eueides isabella

Eueides isabella flies from Mexico to Argentina, and is supposed to have more than twelve subspecies.

in the section below we present, by location, the various forms we collected, and we're eager to present, in the near future, the forms you too collected.

 

later, when we have reasonable series from a number of locations, it will be time to try to make sense out of all these data.
