Another Guess Who 5 by Fezzgator Another Guess Who 5 by Fezzgator
Its been a long time since I've done this (Mostly because my audience had gotten too good) but I think I've got one that may give even the best a hard time IDing this species. So as always the first to properly ID this species wins, I will accept either common name or scientific name! Good luck every one!

Edit: 11/2/09 - Well yet another ID I thought might be tricky shot down within hours. This is a Great Duffer.

Scientific Name: Discophora timora
Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Satyrinae
Tribe: Amathusiini

No, after all this is not an Anaea sp..
I suggest: Discophora sp., maybe Discophora timora timora (Amathusiidae).
(source: [link] , found after searching first on Paul Smart's Encyclopedy).

Geez, I didn't even get the chance to tell you you were wrong with the first guess....Geez, you know how hard it was to get that shot? Maybe I should just ask you what would be hard for you to ID? A skipper? A small bland moth?

It was very hard! I had never seen this beautiful butterfly before. I spent all the morning to find the right genus... I was quite far from the good answer with my first guess. But I have no merit: Paul Smart's book is a bible and the Internet is an amazing tool. :-)
Well, a skipper or a small grey moth would be more difficult indeed...
Anyway, thanks to you, I've learned something today.

The shape of the wings make me think to an Anaea sp....
