Coordinator notes: I was mistaken with my first ID, calling this a "Mylotes Cattleheart" Parides eurimedes which should be "Pink-checked" another common name, but his one is white checked and is thus the "Emerald-patched Cattleheart" and you can see the small bright red spot that give it this name. Thus I have changed the ID to Parides sesostris.
