four ssp or forms of H. erato fly in Sangay NP : H. e. notabilis, H. e. etylus, H. e. lativitta and H. e. lativitta f. ilia

they're clearly supposed to be parapatric, but, in one area South of Puyo, they all fly together, giving birth to all kinds of mixed forms.

we present a sample of these forms, by "pattern" ; here, on the individual variation page, pattern "etylus-lativitta without yellow pigment and with additional markings".

lativitta type butterflies, but the subapical patch is white and not yellow, and there are additional dots, usually red, sometimes whitish.
