Pearly Eye (LEP156c) Lethe portlandia


     This species inhabits woods of the East where it perches on tree trunks and flies rapidly among the dappled shadows.  The color underneath is light brown, with a lilac hue and a pearly sheen.  Brown lines cross the wings, and an orange-like line runs around the rims.  The brown eyespots lie in a loose buff band and have orange rings around them and blue or pearly pupils.
