Grey Pansy

Junonia atlites


This species varies in size, colour and pattern irrespective of sex. The forewing is more falcate in dry season individuals. Its upper side is grey with a slightly reddish hue. The distal row of spots on both wings contains a few distinct ‘eye spots’; usually two on each wing. They are partially red and black, and outlined in a white circle. One such spot on the hindwing is usually hidden by the forewing. The forewing has four wavy brown bands on the cell and another long band beyond the cell. Both wings have two sub-marginal rows of streaks on each. Its underside consists of various greyish browns. The distal band of spots and dark brown lines are entirely absent in some individuals.
