Black Clearwing butterfly, Tatama National Park, Colombia I'm not completely sure about the species. Most promising candidate so far is Oleria amalda. It matches the black outline of the wings, orange higlights (somewhat) and the range is correct.

  1. Glasswing butterflies are so gorgeous and unique! Posted 12 days ago
    1. I agree! The first time I saw one it blew my mind. I even thought it was a singular species, only later did I learn there's many. Colombia alone has dozens of species of them. Posted 12 days ago
      1. Amazing- I had no idea that there were so many kinds! Posted 10 days ago
        1. If you'd like to have a visual look at butterfly diversity, check out this awful website:
          http://www.neotropicalbutterflies.com/colombiapdf/PDFs/

          ...which has some of the best butterfly checklists I've ever seen :)
          PDF13 covers the area I visited, but each of those files is a jewel.
