The Lepcha Bushbrown (Mycalesis (annamitica) lepcha) is a satyrine butterfly found in Asia. It is not resolved whether it is best considered a distinct species, or included in Mycalesis annamitica. It was formerly included in Mycalesis malsara.
Dry-season form.Upperside similar but paler; the ocelli, especially on the hind wing, obscure or absent; the transverse white discal band on the wings seen by transmission from the underside narrow and very obscure. Underside: basal areas of wings up to the discal white band dark brown in the male, ochraceous brown in the female ; the discal white band very narrow and ochraceous white; the terminal margins beyond purpurescent; ocelli minute; both fore and hind wings irrorated with short, transverse, brown striae.
"Race lepcha, Moore. The North-West Himalayan and Southern Indian race of M. malsara, closely resembling it in both the wet- and dry-season forms. It differs in having the transverse discal band crossing both wings very much narrower and not showing through at all on the upperside ; the ocelli are very much smaller and more obsolescent. Underside in the dry-season form irrorated as in M. malsara with short, transverse, dark brown striae."
