General Description

A colourful day-flying moth, occasionally mistaken for a butterfly when flying. The forewing is chocolate brown with a whitish submarginal shade, and black PM, AM and median lines. The hindwing is bright reddish orange with two bold black transverse lines and fine black striations. Superficially similar to Archiaris infans, but the hindwing has two crisp black lines not joined to a broad dark patch on the inner margin as it is in infans.
