The eyespot on the underside of the forewing can often help identify this relatively small butterfly, but as with all things, they vary a lot. The color of their wings can range from dark orange-brown to pale cream. They have a relatively slow, bouncing flight and tend to be found in grassy, open areas.

Size: Wingspan 27-39 mm
