Excellent record! This species has very few ACT records since 2003, they turned up last season for the first time at a couple of our survey sites. Great to know they're flying again this season - and this is the first record for this season, well done.

Ta. At the time I thought I was looking at a faded montane ochre until I looked at it on the computer and realised I didn't have a clue. I feel like this season I'm seeing fewer butterflies (the heat?) but more variety
