Pale Sulphur (Aphrissa statira)

Noel Kempff Mercado National Park has the river Paraguá as a natural border in the west, and on the shores of the river you’ll see a large number of insect species, including pale sulphur (Aphrissa statira). So even though the community of Florida is cattle land, and typically has human waste of different categories, the proximity to the large park means that you can stay on one of these shores for days, and continuously see new species.

These species are seen both on river shores, roads and cattle fields and are outnumbering all other species here..
