yes, this looks like Doxocopa agathina which is a fairly common species around Iquitos

The second one looks like a Temenis laothoe (Biblidiinae)

I would add that the first is the subspecies agathina, ie is a Doxocopa agathina agathina (Cramer, [1777]) (Nymphalidae: Apaturinae). Here in Iguassu Falls is much more common subspecies vacuna, which has yellow spots on the forewing, instead of white.

Abraços,
