Name : Long Brand Bushbrown
Scientific Name : Mycalesis visala

The Long-brand Bushbrown (Mycalesis visala) is a species of satyrine butterfly found in Asia. It might include the Tamil Bushbrown as subspecies.

In colour and the markings on the wings both seasonal forms of M. visala closely resemble those of M. mineus. On the whole, however, M. visala runs larger, and as a rule both sexes (in the continental form, not in the insular race) can be discriminated from the males and females or allied forms by the shape of the fore wing. This is, as a rule, produced and acute at apex, with the tennen below sharply transverse. The males, moreover, have the sex-mark on the underside of the fore wing rather bright ochraceous and very long, extending beyond the transverse bands crossing the wings.

Race andamana, Moore. Male sex-mark on the underside of the fore wing as in M. visala. Shape of wings much more rounded in both seasonal forms of both sexes ; in this closely resembling M. mineus, but the ground-colour of the wings is darker and the ocelli proportionately larger. Disposition of the ocelli apparently quite constant. Upperside: fore wing—two ocelli, the posterior the larger; hind wing—none in the male, an obscure one in the female. Underside : both sexes, fore wing with two, hind wing with seven ocelli; the posterior four of the latter disposed as in M. mineus.

Hi Arun,
Nice b-fly shot taken from a great POV. I also like the blurred background - well chosen aperture to achieve shallow DoF to isolate the main subject visually. Simple yet pleasant to the eyes. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László
