Flies in undergrowth of primary forest.

Sorry, I don't know how to separate these 2 species. It would be great if someone would tell us.
Where is ARCC in Peru? Near what town?
thanks,
k

ARCC is by Rio Las Piedras, north-east of Puerto Maldonado: https://www.google.no/maps/place/12%C2%B002%2747.4%22S+69%C2%B040%2742.5%22W/@-12.0462729,-69.6784722,10z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

This is minyas.

They can be very confusing but here are some small but consistent differences:

#1 minyas always has an odd, small spot near the apex of the hindwing(absent in toxana)

#2 The innermost row of metallic spots is larger in minyas

#3 The metallic spots around the orange spot(especially behind it) are larger/more congested in minyas.

#4 The outermost row of metallic spots are more triangular and tooth-like in toxana.

Hope this helps:)
