Field notes from Isla Colon:

 

This species is common on Isla Colon. I have found it in all habitats, including the rainforest interior, where I found the individual pictured here.

 

A. belti females fly early in the evening, while males typically show up after midnight. This species is present at lights on Isla Colon most nights regardless of season or weather.
