Two pictures of the same butterfly. I think it is one of the Parides sp., but which one/ These pictures were made at Peperpot Nature Park in May 2013. Peperpot is an abandoned coffee and cocoa plantation. Any help with ID'ing is very much appreciated.

maybe Parides eurimedes, that's the one we call pink-checked cattleheart, because of the pink fringe.

Thanks Kim, I guess ID'ing this genus without a picture of the dorsal is rather difficult. I was also looking into e.g. P. lysander lysander and P. sesostris sesostris.
