Hylephila phyleus
Thanks for the ID. There is so much variability in this species. This specimen was very pale. I did sketch out the dorsal forewing markings and thought it must be Hylephila phyleus.

 
Fiery has a spot in the center of cell of ventral hindwing
and male has dark stigma at base of dorsal hindwing which is separated by yellow / orange from a black pistol pattern above
