[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The jungle near Puerto Maldonado is a lepidopteran's
paradise...probably more species of butterfly are indigenous in this area than anywhere else in the world.
This guy's wingspan was about 4 cm. Anybody out there who can identify it?

Hello Michael,
This is a Riodinid butterfly of the genus Lyropteryx, possibly L. lyra. You have created a very sharp image, although I'm not too keen on the blue wooden background...
Thanks, Alan
