The Rurina butterfly exhibits a bright yellow wing colouration. The wings are speckled with little splashes of brown to form its pattern.
Male Rurina’s usually associate themselves in tightly packed groups of around a dozen butterflies. When alarmed by danger from predators, the entire group will erupt spontaneously into the air. The group of Rurinas will then swirl about for several minutes in a mass of fluttering yellow wings. In contrast, female Rurina butterflies are less commonly seen and are a paler yellow in colour.
Adult Rurina butterflies have typical wingspans ranging between 1.5 to 1.7 inches (3.9 to 4.4cm).
