We spent our final morning walking the area just to the east of our hotel Memories at Jibacoa, which lies about an hours drive east of Habana. We added Mesogramma Skipper Atalopedes mesogramma to the list and saw more Phaon Crescent Phyciodes phaon and a Polydamas Swallowtail Battus polydamas. The final total for the butterflies was just 66 species but that was down to the time of year, the end of the dry season, and except for Santa Clara, where there had been some rain the previous week, there seemed to have been little or no rain for months. We had expected it to be wetter in the Escambray mountains but that's a lesson learnt. And we had had a great time and seen some wonderful things, thank you Doug for your company and your expertise.
