I would be very grateful if you could help me with successful identification of the above butterflies - I'm particularly stuck with the ? 4 postman - images 7,8, 9 and 11- I think they are Heliconius melpomone, but they can't all be the same thing. I would like to be accurate.
Again, most grateful for your assistance.
Since you didn't get an ID on this forum yet, let me suggest some sites/forums that could help you:
Project Noah "is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere". http://www.projectnoah.org/
BugGuide.Net "Identification, Images, & Information For Insects, Spiders & Their Kin For the United States & Canada" http://bugguide.net/node/view/15740
What’s That Bug? "Do you have a bug you need identified? Do you want to submit an interesting photo of a bug?" http://www.whatsthatbug.com/
iSpot "Learn more about wildlife, share your interest with a friendly community and get help identifying what you have seen". http://www.ispotnature.org/
I don't know if experts can ID the bumblebee from this photo alone.
Numbers 1 and 3 are Lime Butterflies /Citrus Swallowtails-----Papilio demoleus.
Number 2 is a Crimson Patch----Chlosyne janais
Number 4 is a Glasswing butterfly -------Greta oto
Numbers 5,7,8,9,and 11 are all Heleconia butterflies or Longwings .I presume these were taken at a butterfly house ,in which case they are probably hybrid species .There is a website www.Heliconius .com ,which has a few examples to toy with..The black and orange one could be a Tiger Longwing .
Number 6 is a Plain Tiger butterfly-------Danaus chrysippus.
Number 10 is a Malachite butterfly ------Siproeta stelenes.
Number 12 is a Common Sailor butterfly -------Neptis hylas.
I am not sure about number 13 ,some sort of Swallowtail .
