Eresia datis (formerly Eresia moesta) flies from Colombia to Peru (d’Abrera 1987) ; this butterfly is a Nymphalid which looks like some Ithomiids.

this species has many different and sympatric forms.

we found this form, that we had never seen, near Pablo Sexto ; later we saw this form near Nambija (Zamora Chinchipe).

Eresia moesta is a retiring undergrowth denizen, and a highly variable species in Sangay NP.
