Male upperside is vinaceous brown, the veins ochraceous
brown. Fore and hind wings crossed by four series of
minute white spots, the postdiscal series very often
obscure, each spot bordered inwardly by a more or less
elongate black spot; a terminal very slender black line;
cilia alternately black and white. Underside is bright
ochraceous brown, the veins conspicuously paler, the
white black-bordered spots as on the upperside but
larger, more clearly defined and prominent. Antennae
brown ringed with white; club black, ochraceous at apex;
head, thorax and abdomen concolorous with the wings ;
beneath, the palpi, thorax and abdomen slightly paler
than the wings.
Male upperside has the ground colour darker than in the
wet-season form; the spots are smaller and duller in
colour. On the fore wing the postdiscal series of spots
often obsolescent except the spots in interspaces 3, 6
and 8, the latter two very large and prominent;
sub-terminal series of spots also often obsolescent.
Underside is similar to the underside in the wet-season
form, but the groundcolour a shade darker; the veins not
conspicuously paler; the white spots as in the
wet-season form, except the postdiscal and subterminal
series on the fore wing, which are as on the upperside,
the anterior large white spots of the postdiscal series
being very prominent; the inner black bordering to the
white spots much smaller than in the wet-season form.

Females have the upper and undersides similar to those
of the wet-season form, but the ground-colour brighter
and paler; markings also similar, but the black
bordering to the white spots less prominent.
