Author's notes

There was quite a lot of Asperula gunnii in the vicinity, and the related genus Galium is mentioned as a food plant in some English source I checked last time I found one of these: https://canberra.naturemapr.org/sightings/3388894 This is a more boldly marked individual than my previous sighting.
