  1. I think Lyropteryx apollonia is a better match than Necyria duellona.

    1. I agree, thanks! Posted 6 years ago
    2. By the way, curious if you can make sense of this one:

      Glossy all-black butterfly, Santa María, Colombia Very dark butterfly that looks all-black yet with light shining on it, is rather dark brown and glossy, almost like satin. Haven't found a match for it yet, so help is welcome. Boyacá,Colombia,Ebrietas anacreon,Santa María,South America,World
