These are butterflies in the family Hesperiidae that I have recorded on Isla Colon. Each specimen includes collecting data and observations I have made over years of visits to the island.
These specimens represent some of the more frequently encountered or interesting wasps, bees, and ants that I have found in Bocas. Most have been found on foliage during the day, but some have come to lights or bait set out for Lepidoptera; these data are included here with each specimen.
I am much more familiar with moths than with these groups, so I am in constant need of advice and identification. If you would like more information about any of these specimens, please do not hesitate to email me:
