Description

In the Costa Rica butterfly book I have this is known as Waiter Daggerwing
(Marpesia coresia) but neither the scientific name not common name is listed in iNat. Perhaps the name has changed. In any event, this critter has flashing white underwings but I could never get a shot showing that. It was not very cooperative for photos and I only saw this one.
