Anteas Actinote
Actinote anteas

Observation date: December 02, 2011
Submitted by: jtdiamondback85
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The proposed identification is a result of photos I took at the Museo de Insectos at the Universidad de Costa Rica which showed the genus and species for each butterfly displayed. We watched these from the caterpillar through adult stages and have additional photos of larvae, pupae and eclosure videos if interested although I believe this is a common species. I do not know the host plant because the caterpillars were on the move when we first noticed them.
