Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Unknown

Coordinator notes: On all websites and in butterfly books this Junonia evarete or Tropical Buckeye is regularly confused with the Junonia genoveva or Mangrove Buckeye which are almost identical. I believe that this identification is more likely to be found in Costa Rica and thus agree with the submitter.
Checklist region(s): Costa Rica
