Field notes from Isla Colon:

 

This species occurs occasionally on Isla Colon, though the nearest record on the BoLD website is from Brazil (see link below). There is a record on a Flickr site (link here) from French Guiana, which is at least closer, but the individual does not much resemble my records from Isla Colon.

My identification may be wrong, but the image on the BoLD website appears to be a good match.
