Colombia
August 2013
a non-profit small group tour organised and led by Adrian Hoskins
Trip report | SPECIES LIST
Species recorded in Colombia in August 2013 - list updated 28 Dec 2013

In total we saw about 430 species on the tour, of which 421 were photographed by the participants Adrian Hoskins, Peter Chadd, Peter Bygate, Les Catchick and Chris Orpin. Most of us photographed between 200-300 species. The list which follows was compiled by Adrian Hoskins after meticulously checking all the images taken by the participants. Resources consulted included the 7 indispensable volumes of d'Abrera's 'Butterflies of the Neotropical region', Keith Willmott's 'The Genus Adelpha', and the Butterflies of America (Neotropical) website. I'd like to express my thanks also to Andrew Neild, Tomasz Pyrcz, Jean Francois le Crom, Luis Miguel Constantino and Blanca Huertas for their valued assistance in determining some of the more difficult species.

Hundreds of photographs of the species seen on the tour can now be seen in the Amazon & Andes section, where you will also find detailed articles about the biology of each species.
