Abstract

Three species of Caligo are found in Trinidad: C. brasiliensis minor Kaye (forest mort bleu), C. teucer insulanus Stichel (cocoa mort bleu), and C. illioneus illioneus (Cramer) (cane mort bleu) (Barcant 1970, Cock 2014). This note is intended to enable all three species to be identified in the field and from photographs of butterflies at rest.
