Actually, this is a new species to science in a small species-group Im reviewing taxonomically and it was the subject of my PhD thesis. I supose you didnt collect this specimen but any other information about exact locality it will be very nice for me. Carlos Prieto

2th Febuary 2014; We were lucky with the weather and butterflies in Caranavi lowlands, and saw wild monkeys! In the highlands around Coroico we did not get many hours of sunshine and only a few butterflies. Had a good trip back to Lapaz and got sunshine on top of 4671 meters above sea level, got great images and video of the little pieride; Pierphulia nysias, however, in high winds.
Now the hotel Naira in the center of La Paz, about 3600 m
