The Common Five-Ring

Ypthima baldus


All are marked with fine striations on the underside, and possess a submarginal series of yellow-ringed black ocelli.


This species is found in grassy forest edge habitats and secondary growth, at elevations between about 300-1200m.


Both sexes prefer flying in overcast weather, and are not averse to flying in light rain. They can be found basking on leaf litter or low herbage, but are quite nervous in behaviour.
