Wallace’s Longwing (Heliconius wallacei)

Further up the Cristalino River, the first rapids and a small island with a great tree, Cristalino Jungle Lodge has a small farm and here I found several species of butterflies including this one.

She adds: “Yes, your H. wallacei is correct, based on your ventral, solid red lines instead of a row of dots, nice”.
