These butterflies were all photographed at the REGUA reserve (Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu), SE Brazil in September 2013.

I think that they may be

1st picture - Cloudless Sulphur - Phoebus sennae
2nd picture - Ghost Yellow - Eurema albula
3rd and 4th pictures - Little Yellow - Eurema lisa

However, I'm not certain, so would welcome confirmation or correction.

Thanks

I think your first 2 are correct, but 3 and 4 are probably not Pyrisita lise, I don't think it gets that far south. Probably either Pyrisitia nise or maybe P.venusta. Venusta usually have yellow FW and white HW, it is very striking looking when they fly. The others are mostly all yellow.
Can you please send me 3 & 4? Nice shots.
thanks,
k
