I found many butterflies around the dark forest floor of the forest surrounding the Amazon Research and Conservation Center (ARCC). Many are so well camouflaged that they are invisible when they rest on leaf litter.

ARCC lepidoptera 02
It’s even also hard to see when when it’s sitting on fresh leaves, as the background is leaf litter and the dappled light creates lots of patches of light and shadow.

Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂
