Lemon Pansy (Junonia lemonias) It is the most common of the six Pansies in India. It is a very bold butterfly with strong territorial and aggressive behaviour but not as much as the Peacock Pansy. It flies quickly and strongly but with less fluttering of wings. It generally rests on the ground but not so frequently as the other Pansies and visits damp patches more often than the others of the genus. Like the Chocolate Pansy, it is more abundant in forests and distributed throughout South and Central India, upto South Gujrat in the west and West Bengal in the east. In The Himalayas, it can be seen upto 2700m from Kashmir Upto Assam.
