Godma Tufted-Skipper or Guatemalan Nison
Nisoniades godma

Observation date: October 01, 2021
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found on the grounds of the hotel. Many ornamental gardens and nearby jungled areas. I'm not positive, but it seems the right match for Godma based on the dorsal patterning and apical spot placement. I did not get a good look at the ventral side. Purplish Tufted-Skipper is also possible, but again, the dorsal pattern on the FW seems best for Godma.
