Dear Neotropical Butterflies

I am new to this group and was hoping that someone may be able to identify a butterfly for me.

I was recently sent an email from a Tasmanian student, travelling in Bolivia, whoc came across this nymphalid (see attached) in a 1.2 metre deep hole in the Uyuni Salt Desert in Southern Bolivia. Does anyone know what it is??

regards

I think this is Vanessa carye, one of the Ladies. Do you know about what altitude it was taken at?
thanks,
kim

Kim I believe the Uyumi desert where the butterfly was found is at 3670 m.
