It is an
Amazon Beauty, Baeotus aeilus (Stoll, 1780).
In
danske-natur.dk I have misidentified this species, I correct the error determination of art.

Over the years, I have gained better access to info of Bolivian day butterflies on the web, thanks to several skilled specialists such as
Gottfried Siebel etc.

There are four species of Baeotus species in Bolivia:
Baeotus aeilus, B. beotus, D. deucalion and B. japetus.

Long Proboscis Hawkmoth, Amphimoea walkeri (Boisduval, 1875).
The wingspan is 147–164 mm. Adults are on wing year round. They have the longest insect proboscis in the world, and nectar from deep-throated flowers as
Angel's Trumpet, Brugmansia arborea while hovering in the air. Larvae feed on Anaxagorea crassipetala, a lowland rain forest tree of Costa Rica and surrounding areas, and probably other members of the Annonaceae family.

Kirsten Matthiesen;
I have just arrived in Bolivia a few hours ago, where for the next 2 months I will be photographing butterflies, going to a language school in Spanish, experiencing the local carnival and what else I find on the way.
Peter Møllmann has been here for a month and has thus already photographed a lot of great beautiful butterflies.

Kirsten Matthiesen, January 5, 2019
After a week in Caranavi I landed this morning in Cochabamba, where I will learn español the next few weeks.

I live with a local family, which has already proven to be absolutely fantastic. They are very gracious and patient when I'm looking for the words. We have spoken Spanish several times during the day so my head is tired, but at the same time hungry for more

Frank Aalestrup; A trip that starts today January 2, 2019, knows that I drive to Copenhagen, Denmark to meet with a travel companion Nikolaj Kleissl, so that together we can start the journey tomorrow morning ... with a closed Storebælt's bridge because of windy weather and a train accident put a little brake in for my arrival in Zealand.

My Blog
It will be a travel description and a description of what I experience during my stay in Bolivia.
I am on a photo tour in the area of Caranavi it is approx. 5 hours drive from the capital La Paz.
