This is a medium sized migratory species that can be seen in almost every part of the country in forests as well as in home gardens.
The appex is orange in colour and is divided along the veins with a black margin. The ubderside is similar to a dry leaf; giving a good camuflage effect.


The photo was clicke at the Knuclles reserves on the way to Sera Alla in a relatively dry season.
