Its has gray wings, the borders of which have broad triangles of black with white and orange patches. Hind wings have tiny columnar patterns in orange with black dots and a white wavy margin.


Cardamom estate in Munnar, Kerala, India. It settled on the cemented pathway and rested barely long enough for me to take two snaps.
