Tiger mimic-white

Wing span:

Identification: The wings are dark brown with orange streaks radiating from the base to approximately midway of the forewings, and a single orange streak on the hindwings from the base to the submargin around mid-termen. The forewings also have two yellow bands, each made up of three spots, one at the subapex and the other at the upper postdiscal region. The hindwings have a large white patch covering the apex all the way to mid-costa and mid-termen at the submargin. This patch is not visible on the underside; instead, there are faint yellow spots on the underside of the hindwings, in addition to the orange streak appearing faintly. The forewings have a faint white tint on the underside, excepting the costal margin and cell below the costa as well as the apex and subapex. The markings that appear on the upperside of the forewings are all faintly visible on the underside, even through the white tint.
