Heliconius butterfly collection records in the Chocó-Darien Rainforest (Ecuador, Colombia, Panama) 2014-2016

These data comprise collection records of Heliconius butterfly samples collected in the Chocó-Darien ecoregion between the Andes and the Pacific in Ecuador and Colombia, and the Pacific coast of the Darien region of Panama. Samples were collected over five sampling trips between 2014 and 2016. Data were collected for a study of clinal variation across this region in Heliconius erato and Heliconius melpomene, so focus on these two species. However, in most cases all observed Heliconius species were collected.

The dataset includes photographs of the wings of most of the specimens, which were used for an analysis of colour and pattern variation. Many of these individuals also have genomic information available for them on the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) - the data includes ENA accession numbers.

Data were collected as part of a NERC fellowship project (NE/K008498/1).

Provenance & quality

Sampling was performed with hand nets, targeting all observed Heliconius individuals. The collection records do not represent a standardised sampling, as collecting effort (time and number of collectors) varied between days. Species identities were confirmed by at least two experts and in listed cases also by genetic information. Photographs were taken under standardised lighting conditions (see supporting documentation).
