Rusty-tipped Page Butterfly

The Rusty-tipped Page, Siproeta epaphus, is found from Peru northward through Central America. I have seen him once before in my garden and now inside my house on a window screen – and yes, I let him out after the photo! I’ve also seen him in two other locations: Si Como No Hotel in Manual Antonio National Park and at Tapirus Lodge in Braulio Carrillo National Park with much better photos in my Rusty-tipped Page Gallery which is a part of my bigger Butterfly Gallery.

Note that I also now have a Costa Rica butterfly book, Pura Vida Butterflies with photos of 120+ different species of butterflies and moths, including this one, with a free preview at the link.

¡Pura Vida!

  1. Glad to know that Margaret! I will have to go butterfly hunting in Palmares someday! 🙂 I get lots of different kinds here in Atenas, but this was only my second time for this interesting fellow here.
