The upper side is greyish brown with a large white area on the hindwing. The forewing has a large circular black spot with two-minute white spots inside and it is further outlined in a brownish-yellow line. The white spots have light blue luster in newly emerged individuals. The hindwing has two or three small ‘eye spots’ above a wavy sub-marginal band. The dull brown background of the underside of its forewing is striated in white, while the colors are inverted on its hindwing. Females expose more white on the hindwing. The forewing has a very large ‘eye spot’, while the hindwing always has four spots. The sizes of these spots vary.
