Pigmalion skipper

Wing span:

Identification: The wings are dark brown with iridescent blue parafocal lines. There are white discal, central and subapical bands on the forewings. The forewings have iridescent green lines that start at the base and run parallel to the dorsum. These are not visible on the underside of the forewings. Instead, there is an iridescent green postbasal band. There are whitish-blue basal bands that start just below the costa of the hindwings and run parallel to the dorsum. These appear as three iridescent green bands on the underside of the hindwings.
