Significant sighting

1 May 2022

Vagrant species to the ACT region with few records, although appears to be an influx in autumn 2022.

User's notes

Two very fresh D. nigrina seen together in and around mistletoe in a big box and feeding on a small thorn bush nearby. This is a different location than the one I found a couple of weeks ago.

Still yet to see one, maybe I should hang out with you for a day?

right now if you see a Delias, esp. if fresh take a close look at it, it may very well be one of these. should be findable again in the next few days. they seem to stick about a place one they find it interesting - i.e. suitable habitat
