This delicate beauty is a Orange-spotted Tiger Clearwing . It is also referred to as a Disturbed Tigerwing (Mechanitis polymnia). It is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. In the wild you will find them from Mexico to the Amazon Rainforest. I happened to find this one at The Butterfly Palace and Amazon Adventure in Branson, MO.
