Both sexes are identical except for the smaller area of blue at the wing bases on the upper side in females. The pattern on both sides can vary. The cilia of both wings are alternately marked in black and white. Its outer margins are marked in black on the upper side with a row of white lines on the hindwing. The inward area is white with intrusions of black. The black patches on its underside are evenly distributed throughout the wings, without leaving any distinct patch-less areas. The forewing has a black basal line which continues up to its thorax. The patches on the sub-marginal bands are not apparent against the other spots. The sub-marginal spots near the tornus are suffused with brilliant, shiny light blue scales in newly emerged individuals.
It is quite a fast but irregular flyer, and flies around shrubs and herbs. It is fond of feeding on nectar of those plants and does not feed on bird droppings like the Banded Blue Pierrot.
Habitats and Distribution
It is commonly found in open vegetation up to the lower hills including wastelands, roadside vegetation and scrublands. In forests, it only appears in sunny openings.
