I have arranged the images in accordance with my perception of wing characters: predominent markings, shape, colour, size.
There are probaby some Suriname species not listed below, and there are many species not officially confirmed for Suriname, although I think they have a good chance of being found there.
Females often have a wing shape or pattern that differs from the males. I hope some day to also have a thumbnail checklist for the females.
