Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Charlie Doggett

Coordinator notes: I am going with her suggested ID because that is the most common blue all over Costa Rica, but really, that photo does not show enough to give an accurate identification. It could possibly be one of several different similar species, but Morpho helenor is a safe bet! :-)
