Junonia hierta

The Yellow Pansy is quite common but can be elusive. The sexes can be told apart from their upper sides. The female has a dark spot in the large yellow hind wing patch, and has two wavy lines, characteristic of this group of butterflies, extending inward from the fore-wing costa. The male lacks the spot, and the wavy lines appear to be subsumed into the basal black.
