These 4 butterflies (A,B,C,D) were all photographed in the lowland forest at the REGUA reserve (Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu), SE Brazil in September 2013.

I think that they are Tigerwings, and from the wing pattern I presume each is a separate species, although I hadn't appreciated this at the time I took the photographs!

I've been unable to find these in the photo gallery but, I hope they can be identified from these under-wing patterns.

Thanks

I think A & C are the same, maybe Hypothyris euclea laphria
B = Mechanitis polymnia casabranca
D = Mechanitis lysimnia lysimnia
please send them all, especially B as I don't have that one. A & C would be good too, so I can make sure of the id.
thanks a bunch,
k
