Manerebia inderena  Ecuador, Tony Hoare
Introduction
There are 1100 known species of Satyrinae in the neotropical region. The subtribe Erebiina includes the Erebia Mountain Ringlets of the Holarctic region, and 8 exclusively neotropical genera.
There are 44 species in the genus Manerebia. All are small, dark brown butterflies. Many are quite plain, marked only with inconspicuous ocelli. Others such as lisa, rubescens, leaena, fransiscae and inderena have a prominent cream or white band across the underside hindwing.
Manerebia inderena is found on the eastern slopes of the Andes, in Colombia and Ecuador.
Habitats
This is a cloudforest species, found in disturbed grassy habitats along roadsides at altitudes between about 1500-2400m.
Lifecycle
To be completed.
Adult behaviour

The butterflies are always seen singly, usually when imbibing moisture from muddy ground, but I have seen other Manerebia species at carrion and dung in Ecuador, so it is reasonable to assume that this species shares the same habits.
