Looks like a female Green Darter to me.

Even though it was far away, at the top of the bush, it looked bigger than Ocybadistes walkeri, and seemed brighter in colour. I felt it was a skipper I'd never seen before. Another new butterfly species for Canberra & Southern Tablelands Nature Map?

Species #20 for my backyard butterfly list.
