This butterfly was seen on waterside vegetation in the REGUA reserve (Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu), SE Brazil in September 2013.

Looking in the galleries I think it is an Actinote species. The nearest I can see in wing pattern is Anteas actinote, although the depth of colour differs between the gallery photo and my image. I'd welcome comments on its identity.

Thanks

Well, it is definitely an Actinote species. I've asked Jorge which one, there are lots of them in Brazil.

Jorge says Actinote pellenea pellenea,the all orangey species. He has only seen 1 other Actinote in the lowlands, A.thalia pyrrha, but up in Tres Picos Park there are 7 or 8 species flying.
