obscure subterminal band. There is a also a reddish-orange spot bordered with
black near the middle of the forewing's apex. Above, the hindwings are dark
greenish grey-brown, with a series
of reddish-orange spots outwardly bordered with black,

greenish-blue, each cell with a black subquadrate spot at the centre, whilst
the innermost cell at the bottom, is in
part reddish-orange. The underside
