today removed galleries and photos of Bolivia from 2004 to 2008.
Therefore missing more photos on Bolivian Butterflies Checklist. It is
useful to visit the Butterflies
of America if you want to see these
species from Bolivia. These
earlier galleries from Bolivia are out
of date, and from a time when my experience with
digital photography and image editing was limited.
With hopes of a good butterflies season Lars

The list has been started
because I had track of all my photos of
butterflies from Bolivia, I did not know
how many different species I've
photographed? And it has irritated me a
lot. Now after three months I begin to
get an overview of how many species I
have photographed, and it has been an
exciting job to do.

stands a 138 species in Bolivia (Beccaloni & Gaston, 1994) they have after
examination of Ithomiinispecies in an area that
perhaps is approx; 2700 to 2900 species in
Bolivia. Families are expected additions in Riodinidae and Lycaenidae. Work is still on list, there is
the large group; Hesperidae to get up and running!

d. 8 january 2014; Mail from Kim
Garwood; Those are very nice shots of the
mystery Nicolaea. There are quite few
undescribed species in this genus, looking on Butterflies

which one yours might be at this point. Thanks, K

10 january 2014; I sent it over to Gerardo
Lamas in Peru to hear whether he knows
it. Sincerely, Tom N. Kristensen.
11 january 2014; Dear Tom, There are several hairstreak
species which have underside wing patterns
