Butterflies / Venezuela 1 (1 Viewer)

Some years ago I visited Venezuela for a mixed trip for birding and butterfly/moth "studying", it was really amazing to see all these uge amount fo moth and some butterflies. A lot of them are still not identified. But now I think that the members of this forum can help we to get an idea about the species! Let's start with the hard work now.

I will begin with some butterflies.

Note: I need some time to prepare the photos. Therefore I will add some threads step by step. I think it will be very interesting for all of us.

1 Looks like a Lycorea species, a large and complex group.

2 I have a feeling that this is one of the Morphos?

The last two are Hesperids again, Skippers and another large and complex group.

Not sure it is Lycorea as it's not got yellowish antennal ends. (Also wing shape.) There are a bunch of things with this colour pattern: ithomiines, Heliconius etc.

Agree 2 is nymphalid, but can't make it into a morpho

The blue one (3) is a riodinid, looks like Lasaia, I think

2 is a worn [Archaeo]prepona amphimachus
