New butterfly species discovered by the Parrots in Peril expedition

Whilst at WWF, I auctioned off the naming of another new butterfly we discovered to raise conservation funds. Isobel Talks won the naming right and I helped her to go to Ecuador to find her butterfly in the wild!   You can find the video link to the news story here add video link

The science behind the identification of the butterfly is described by expert Tomas Prcyz in Poland in his attached paper.
