  1. Awesome! Tachychlora sp., I think. Posted 7 months ago
    1. Thanks, I'm quite sure that's right! A pretty obscure genus yet here they have specimens of 6 species:

      Out of those 6, I'm thinking only Tachychlora lepidaria matches. It's the only one having the 3 wavy brown bands. Furthermore, it has several observations near South Colombia / Northern Ecuador.

      And then I found Tachychlora amilletes and now I'm confused lol.

      1. I was unsure of a species as well, until you mentioned Tachychlora lepidaria. That looks like the best match to me, no? Posted 7 months ago
        1. I'd say about 90% sure, so will use it tentatively, thanks! Posted 7 months ago
