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 "lativitta f. ilia without yellow pigment" and with altered markings.

butterflies close to f.ilia, but with alterations and all yellow markings turned white.
