Sheridan Coffey and I visited Suriname from November 09 - 16, 2011 - on the way we spent a day touring Curacao in the Dutch Antilles. As usual our priority was birds, so not too many butterflies - although it was nice to see the nominate form of species that were originally decribed from the Guianas:

Curacao :

CUR11-lep01: Leptotes cassius cassiodes Cassius Blue.

Suriname :

SUR11-lep03: Leucochimona hyphea pallida Hyphea Metalmark (near Airport).
