[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is for my friend Luciano from Italy. This is the first butterfly picture I have taken with my new camera. This is the wet season form of this species. The picture was taken on a cloudy day today.

Ypthima huebneri, the common fourring, is a species of Satyrinae butterfly found in Asia.

Wet-season form

Upperside greyish brown. Forewing with the usual comparatively large, bi-pupilled, yellow-ringed, black preapical ocellus. Hindwing usually with two, sometimes with three, very rarely without any, smaller similar uni-pupilled postdiscal ocelli. Underside greyish white, not very densely covered with transverse short brown striae. Forewing with the preapical ocellus as on the upperside, obscure discal and subterminal dull brown transverse fasciae and a narrow brown ring round the ocellus diffusely produced posteriorly. Hindwing with one apical and typically three postdiscal posterior ocelli placed in a curve; traces of transverse brown discal and subterminal fasciae in most specimens. Antenna, head, thorax and abdomen greyish brown, the abdomen paler beneath. Male without secondary sex-mark,
