Meadow Argus

Junonia villida calybe

Description:

This butterfly looks a bit battered but clearly still kicking! Yay! "The male and female are similar in appearance. Their wings have upper surfaces that are brown, with orange and white markings, and blue eye spots. The latter are blue spots surrounded by a dark brown ring, which is in turn enclosed by an orange circle. There is a large eye spot at the outer margin of each forewing, and two smaller eye spots on each hindwing. The costa of each forewing also bears a small blue bar bordered on each side by orange." (Butterfly House)

Habitat:

Resting on this plant at Mt Hart.
