Bolivia

we have no precise location for this butterfly collected on january IIth 1979, but this is the only specimen we know from Bolivia,

 

 

it is funny to see that:

    - the two wide orange lines starting from the base of the FW,

    - and the two black streaks near the apex of the HW,

typical of Mexico populations,

are back on South Peru specimens, when they seem to be totally absent from Central America to Southern Ecuador.

it would  be particularly interesting to have more specimens from Guatemala, Southern Colombia and Northern Peru.
