This butterfly was photographed flying around our group whilst we stopped for lunch along the Portao Azul trail, in the Tres Picos NP, SE Brazil in September 2013. It was landing on our bags and clothes, but was very active and difficult to photograph. In flight it was clearly purply-blue. I managed one closed wing shot, but also caught a blurred image as it flew off someones jeans. The wing shape suggested Epiphile to me, and the blurred image made me think that it might be Orea Banner, Epiphile orea, but I'd welcome feedback.

Thanks

That's a good guess, I would go along w/E.orea.
thanks,
