Coordinator notes: Also called "Yellow-fronted Owl-Butterfly" --- Jay, note the pale or yellowish area toward front and the two almond eyes which the "Caligo eurilochus" or Forest Giant Owl Butterfly does not have. Unfortunately some websites have the two confused. To see the difference, see my photo of a Giant Owl at: https://charliedoggett.smugmug.com/OTHER-WILDLIFE/Butterflies-Moths/Owl-Forest-Giant-Owl-Butterfly-Caligo-eurilochus/i-4GkkT3f/A Muchas gracias for your submissions!
