In my short two-night stay at Xandari Costa Rica I photographed 13+ species of butterflies with a few more still unidentified, so maybe more. 🙂 It is my #1 best location for wild butterflies so far! In this post I present the the only two “lifers” or first-time seen butterflies on this trip.
Chestnut Crescent – Anthanassa argentea
This one is easily confused with the Tulcis or Pale-banded Crescent and the Ardent Crescent (both in my gallery).
Gray-based Crescent – Castilia griseobasalis
And this one is easily confused with both the Mayan and Cryptic Crescents with only the Mayan in my gallery.
You can find more of the “Crescents” Butterflies in my BRUSHFOOTS FAMILY of galleries.
