This is the second-ever record of this species for the ACT.

Author's notes

The second one was seen near the top of the hill, and would not stop and perch. This butterfly perched briefly a couple of times. Pic 2 is it in flight, it appeared very bright yellow when in flight (ie the upperside of wings). Sorry terrible pics, it really did not want to stop for photos :(.
