  Lemon Pansy

 

PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Thailand

A Lemon Pansy. It is brown with dark and lemon-yellow spots and lines on the upperside of the wings, as well as a number of orange-black, eyespots, that resemble those of an owl and serve to deceive potential predators. This one is in the  dry season form, when its markings are more obscure and paler, especially on the underside, and the wing margin is more angular and jagged against its wet-season form.
