Grecian Shoemaker butterfly

Catonephele numilia, Grecian ShoemakerGrecian Shoemaker butterfly

I was lucky enough to catch a photo of this beautiful butterfly, which is apparently Catonephele numilia, common name Grecian Shoemaker, Black Velvet or Spotlight Catone.

In trying to identify it, I found photos from southeast Brazil (number 240 on this very long page), Mexico, and a Omaha, Nebraska zoo.

Beautiful colors!
