Agrias hewitsonius lachaumei

Agrias hewitsonius lachaumei has been described in 2014 by Gilles Séraphin from a population localized in the Ucayali Valley in Peru. It has been named after the French entomologist, Gilbert Lachaume. It is a rather easy-to-find subspecies. The differences with beata are not obvious to me though… (O.P.).

= Agrias beatifica lachaumei (synonym)
