I found this individual resting on my kitchen door first thing this morning. I have checked the internet and can only presume that it is a "Flasher" Astraptes sp. But there are so many of them that I could not possibly give the species epithet. Any ideas?

Hola: I believe this is either Astraptes cretatus or creteus. Saludos Ricardo
