This one's a female (your last sighting 4466709 was a male).

Brilliant. I have so many photos of brown butterflies that they are driving me crazy. Just deleted heaps.

If you've got any left check them against the 'Field Guide' - you never know. https://canberra.naturemapr.org/categories/guide/222?1=1

Yeah well I didn't delete any that might be different. They are all still there. So in fact there are still an awful lot there. It was mostly doubles and ones that really were not going to be identifiable.
