Field notes from Isla Colon:

 

This butterfly is one of the more commonly encountered species of Riodinidae in the rainforest interior. Individuals fly fast in the understory and land on the underside of palm leaves, where they can often be found resting in the late afternoon. I have found E. patrona to be more common in the summer months.
