Hamadryas amphinome

This species is described on pg 44 of Goode's Intro to Costa Rican Butterflies. They typically rest on tree trunks with their heads down, giving them good concealment against the trunk. They are often referred to as "cracker" butterflies because of the crackling sound they make when flying, like the crackling of static electricity.
