These 2 butterflies were both photographed at the REGUA reserve (Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu), SE Brazil in September 2013.

I think they are probably the same species (male and female or possibly fresh and old?). Looking in the gallery, the nearest I can see is Calephelis aymaran, but I'd welcome feedback on this tentative id.

Thanks

They're definitely Calephelis, I would guess 2 different species due to the wing shape, but I can't id them to species. This is an almost impossible genus, at least for me.
Very nice shots, though,
thanks,
