Male: Dark brown on the upper side with a broad golden brown band on the outer margin of the hindwing. This band is divided by dark brown lines along its veins. Sometimes, the forewing has shiny blue spots or streaks towards the upper margin of the forewing. A sex brand is visible along the hindwing cell. Its reddish brown underside is striated in grey-brown increasing towards the outer margins. There is a small white spot above the hindwing cell.
In my backyard.
Common in open vegetation throughout the low lands, it is abundant in coconut plantations.
