In April 2014 I spent several days in Trinidad on a bird watching holiday, based at the Asa Wright Nature Centre, and visiting other locations in the northern range. Although it was the dry season and insects were few and far between, I did photograph some butterflies.

I have confidently identified some of them, but would like to post some photos on this forum to check tentative identities or to seek help with those I'm unable to identify.

I thought I would do this as a series of postings, each with a small number of species.

I would like to express my thanks to anyone able to respond to my postings.

These are not great photos, and I'm not too sure about their identity.

Photo1 - I think this could be is Parides anchises (Anchises Cattleheart)

Photo 2 - I don't know what this is, the shape of the pink spots on the hind wing doesn't seem to fit with any of the 3 cattlehearts of Trinidad, viz: P. anchises, sesostris and neophilus. Perhaps P. sesostris is the closest fit?
