Heliconius pachinus; many thanks to bayucca for confirmation and info on the diagnostic field mark (see Notes). Cf H. hewitsoni. Not a great shot; wasn't even going to bother posting it, but this species is endemic to the Pac slope of Costa Rica & Panama, & there are not too many other shots on Flickr (and only 1 or 2 taken in the wild). The pattern of red rays seems to match H. pachinus, but don't know if that's actually diagnostic.

Eresia ithomioides. I was going crazy looking for this exact pattern among the longwings (Helconiinae), and finally discovered that this is a true brushfoot (Nymphalinae) horning in on this longwing mimicry complex.

ID help welcome -- thanks to scott_rtw for Psychotria elata on the companion photo. This is an incredibly diverse genus, so I will consider the species tentative for now, especially as I have 2 plants with leaves pretty different in appearance.

Yeah, it's a feeder shot. I decided I'm not proud. :-) The iridescent color is absolutely unreal.

In case you were wondering, green refers to the color of the female.

Not a great shot, but couldn't resist. The colors on these are absolutely unreal. This barely begins to capture it.

Oh, and this is the female. The male is even more spectacular.
