Butterflies from north-central Ecuador
Sheridan Coffey, Willie Sekula, and Dan Peak and myself made a birding and butterflying trip to Ecuador during Feb 6 - 17 2006. On the West Slope we visited areas in and near Yanacocha, Nono, Tandayapa, Nanegalito, Mindo, Los Bancos, and Puerto Vicente Maldonaldo (12,000 - 1,500 feet.) On the East Slope we visited areas in and near Antisana, Papallacta, Cuyuja, San Isidro, upper Loreto Road, and Archidona (15,000 - 3,000 feet.)
Almost none of these bugs have been identified by me - I'd be very grateful for some guidance!
