The underside of the body, palpi and wings and the upperside of the hindwing is deep orange fulvous. Ambulyx substrigilis substrigilis comes in two forms, a pale, bright tawny-ochraceous form with a bright orange underside, and a darker, drab form with the markings of the hindwing upperside smaller.
