Anartia amathea

(Linnaeus, 1758)

The brown peacock or scarlet peacock (Anartia amathea) is a species of nymphalid butterfly, found primarily in South America. The type locality is probably Suriname, and the species is found from Panama to Argentina; Grenada, Barbados, Antigua. It is reported as common in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, the Brazilian highlands, the eastern Amazon, the Guianas, Venezuela, and Panama, as well as Trinidad and other Caribbean islands. North American records are either in error or refer to strays.

Larval host plants are mostly undetermined, but these include the families Acanthaceae and Labiatae.
