I saw this butterfly in the Picos de Caledonia, Tres Picos NP in SE Brazil in September 2013.

The most like this that I can see in the photo gallery is Adelpha thessalia indefecta, but I'd welcome feedback on this tentative id.

Thanks

Adelpha cytherea aea. Do you know about what elevation you took it at? It shouldn't have been much above 1,200 meters.
thanks, nice shot, could you send please send me this one as a bigger jpg?

Thanks for the id. We were at high altitude am. but had descended quite a lot by the afternoon, when I photographed this butterfly. I've contacted Andy Foster and asked him to confirm the altitude for me. I'll post it here when he replies.

Regards
Midge

Hi Kim

Andy has replied that we were at approx 1500m - so rather higher than your circa 1200m cut-off! Do we need to re-consider the id, or do you think this altitude is a possibility for this species?

Regards
Midge
