Mycalesis maianeas maianeas (Hewitson)

This is a beautiful forest insect that can be baited with rotting fruit and is one of the rarer Mycalesis species to be encountered along a forested path. The Mycalesis butterflies, like many other satyrids, are active in the earlier part of the morning or the later part of the afternoon.
