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

I think the first could be from the genus Cissia, and the second - 2 photos - (which looks as though it survived an attack!)
may be a Pareuptychia sp. but those are best guesses rather than than informed opinion! I see that the leaf is in the same state as the butterfly!!!

The final one looks very like the picture of Pierella lamia. in the gallery.

As ever, I'd welcome some id assistance.

Thanks

I've now received my copy of Butterflies of Southern Amazonia. Comparing my pics with the photos of Satyrs in that region,
I think the id's of these species could be as follows;

First photo - Genus Cissia, possibly "species 3"

Second & third photos - Genus Pareuptychia, possibly hesionides.

Fourth photo - Pierella lamia.

However, I'm unsure if these species are present in the location these butterflies were seen, and would welcome feedback.

Thanks
