Only really spot-on match for the pattern is Urbanus elmina; not sure I can rule out U. belli, but going to go with appearance for now. www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/t/Urbanus_a.htm.

Clearing edge. Wish me luck! The plant was easier: I've run across Cayenne porterweed as an invasive alien in both Hawaii & Tahiti, but here it is native.

This one is probably hopeless (maybe Satyrinae?), but posting it anyway. Forest interior, Ecuador, west slope, 1900 m.

Description

Giant plant, towering several meters with leaves the size of banana leaves. Tentative ID; via hasbrouck.asu.edu/neotrop/plantae/checklists/checklist.ph... (and then widened to hasbrouck.asu.edu/neotrop/plantae/checklists/checklist.ph...). H. longa looked like the best match, but that is synonymized with H. curtispatha. Found west of the Andes, but most of the records are in the lowlands (up to 500 m). Can't rule out the possibility it was introduced here on the grounds of this ecolodge, but just seemed to be part of the forest, down by the river.

To our hosts, it was a pesky critter raiding their bird feeders. To us, it was a life mammal.
