TYPE LOCALITY: 'North America'
BELIZE RECORDS: Augustine; Maya Beach.
METHOD OF IDENTIFICATION: by comparison with specimens in my collection from throughout
tropical America. Unlikely to be confused with any other species.

differing mostly in the ground-colour of fore- and hind-wings. The subspecies
illustrated here is ssp. ornatrix Linnaeus. It is possible that some of
the other forms may be present in Belize.
