Characteristics

Characteristics:

Male butterflies in this genus and its sister genus Pagyris are easily recognised by a distinctive raised bump on the hindwing underside in a position that corresponds with the location of the androconial patch. This is an excellent character easily recognised in the field and females can generally be readily matched with males found in the same location, as there is little sexual dimorphism in the genus.
