Ixias alticola (Pendlebury, 1933)

Denizen of the hill stations and montane environment. It flies in the earlier part of the morning when the sun is full, visiting flowers like Lantana and Mikania. It is usually very skittish and avoid human presence. Females have white background colour and white apical band over black markings while males have an orange apical tip. The undersides are indistinguishable from other species of Ixias, which is a rich yellow ground colour with various degree of mottling.
