Montane Ecuador
Butterfly Photo Album

July 31 - August 9, 2006

Butterflying in Ecuador is way beyond my poor skills and there are few references available.
Thanks to Hank and Priscilla Brodkin's photos of a trip they made to this same area, to
Tandayapa Lodge for their small collection of photos and to Mitch Lysinger I was able to sort out a few.

A special thanks to Kim Garwood and Jim Brock for their assistance identifying many of these bugs.
Jean-Claude Petit (JCP) who has experience with leps in Ecuador has offered additional ID comments.

Any further assistence with identifications will be greatly appreciated.
Please contact me.
