Introduction
There are 19 species in the genus Loxerebia, most of which are endemic to China or Tibet, although one species narasingha is found in India, Nepal, Thailand and Laos.
Typically Loxerebia species are dark brown or blackish on the upperside, with a pair of conspicuous united ocelli near the apex of the forewing. In several species there are additional smaller ocelli on the forewing and hindwing, and all of these spots appear on both wing surfaces.

Loxerebia ruricola is found only in western China.
