[En-Es] Genus Anthanassa

(Edited)

Hello friends of Insects of the world. A few days ago I was very happy because I found a new butterfly.
I saw it fluttering around early, making brief stops on the leaves of the orejon oregano (Plectranthus amboinicus), the violet (Asystasia gangetica) and on the flower of the anisillo (tagetes lucida).

Hola amigos de Insectos del mundo. Hace días me alegré mucho porque encontré una nueva mariposa.
La vi revoloteando temprano, haciendo paradas breves en las hojas del orégano orejon (Plectranthus amboinicus), de la violeta (Asystasia gangetica) y de la flor del anisillo (Tagetes lucida).

It did not seem to look for a particular plant or flower, but rather to bask in the morning sun.

No parecía buscar una planta o flor en especial, sino tomar el sol de la mañana.

After taking some photos, I checked the identification application and it did not give a specific result, but it did indicate that it belongs to the Anthanassa genus.

Después de tomarle fotos consulté la aplicación de identificación y no dió un resultado específico, pero sí me indicó que pertenece al género Anthanassa.

It is small, about 3 centimeters wide, brown with very bright mustard yellow spots. The body and eyes are also brown. The legs are yellow, while the antennae are alternating white or yellow and black or brown, ending in rounded yellow tips.

Es pequeña, de unos 3 centímetros de envergadura, marrón con manchas amarillo mostaza muy brillantes. El cuerpo y los ojos también son marrones. Las patas son amarillas, mientras que las antenas son de color blanco o amarillo y negro o marrón alternados, terminando en puntas redondeadas amarillas.

It is an insect of the order Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), superfamily papilionoidea (butterflies and manakins), family Nimphalydae (brush-footed butterflies), subfamily Nymphalinae (crescents, chess points, angular wings); Melitaeini Tribe, Genus Anthanassa (crescent butterflies, moon butterflies).
It is probably the species Anthanassa Tulcis (pale-banded), but it also resembles Anthanassa Frisia (Cuban moon), and Anthanassa Texana.

This genus is distributed in North, Central and South America. The larvae feed on acanthaceae, the adults on flower nectar. They inhabit open and desert areas, and fly all year round in the tropics.

Este género se distribuye en Norte, Centro y Sudamérica. Las larvas se alimentan de acanthaceae, los adultos de néctar de las flores. Habitan áreas abiertas y desérticas, y vuelan todo el año en el trópico.

I hope you enjoyed the images of this new little butterfly.

Watch out for the human traffickers at hivefest. You wont know it until its too late. STAY AWAY! Beware, traffickers can be women or men! They will act nice until they dont. There is human trafficking going on around this type of crypto. I have witnessed it. They literally have attempted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem if you run into one of them you may want to immediately shoot them in the face. 187, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, behead, bleed, bludgeon, boil, bomb, bone, burn, bury, butcher, cap, casket, choke, chop, club, crucify, crush, curb, decapitate, decimate, deflesh, demolish, destroy, devein, disembowel, dismember, drown, electrocute, eliminate, end, euthanize, eviscerate, execute, explode, exterminate, extinguish, finish, fry, grind, guillotine, gut, hack, hang, hit, ice, implode, incinerate, kill, liquidate, lynch, massacre, maul, microwave, mutilate, neutralize, obliterate, off, pop, poison, punnish, quarter, ruin, shank, shock, shoot, shred, skin, slay, slaughter, smoke, smother, snipe, snuff, squish, stab, strangle, stone, suffocate, suicide, SWAT, swing, terminate, torture, terrorize, whack, waste, wreck.

Hello @ekavieka, I use Google lens and, to confirm if there is any doubt about the name of a plant, I also use "Picture this". Thank you for your support 🙂.
