Costa Rica Butterflies ID help, please

I've been to Costa Rica last August and have taken quite a number of shots of different species. I was able to ID a few, others I think I know what they are (but I'm not sure) and several I haven't the foggiest idea what they are. These are some of the latter:

1) taken in Selva Verde, Caribbean lowlands.
2) & 3) same specimen, taken in Copey area, Pacific mountains.
4) taken in front of the entrance of Carara N. P., by the road. Pacific lowlands.

Can anybody help with the ID?

Thank you in advance

Marian

Butterfly id

Hello, I am not sure on two of them although the first is Cissia hesione and the second photo on the rocks seems to be Catasticta theresa I hope this helps.

Thanks a lot, Adrian! Yes, it really helps! I must add that 2nd and 3rd photos are of the same specimen, I forgot to say it when I posted the shots (now I've correct it). I hope that helps too, to anyone who can confirm your ID.
Thanks you again
Marian

4. looks like a Chlosyne species, perhaps Ch. hippodrome.

Oh, Harri, thanks a lot for your help. I'm a bit late (a month) but I hope you forgive me! I had lost my hopes on finding somebody to help with that thirth Butterfly and I've not checked this thread for a long long time.

Thank you very much to you both, Adrian and Harri! I have more Costa Rican Butterflies to ID, and I'll post them very soon.
