How about a Catasticta? Don't think it's an Adelpha.

Yes, you are totally right! This butterfly matches well Catasticta duida (www.butterfliesofamerica.com) which is the only Catasticta known from the summit of Mt Roraima (Costa et al. 2013, Lepidoptera del Pantepui). Thank you so much!

Great! Do you have a list of butterflies from Mt. Roraima? Had you been there before?

That was my first trip to Mt Roraima. The publication I mentioned above is probably the closest to a list of butterflies for this area (http://www.entomotropica.org/index.php/ ... ew/414/449).
