The Eyed Brown is yellowish brown, and has a generally faded look, even when fresh. Above and below, it has four pale-bordered dark spots on the forewing and six on the hindwing. Above, the spots are slightly blurred and the lower ones on each wing sometimes have small white pupils. On the underside, the spots are much more distinct and always have white pupils (the lowest spot has two), and are surrounded by concentric rings of light and dark. Favors wet meadows and is common in the northeast.
