Black and White Skipper
I'd never seen this butterfly in the wild. My mate Alex in SA sent me up a few specimens he'd caught - they survived the trip so I took some pics of them. I very much want to see them for real, as I spent some time watching their close relative A. dactyliota when I was in Perth, and enjoyed them a lot.
I finally saw the butterfly in the wild on my trip to SA in November 2017. I saw several worn specimens at the top of low limestone cliffs at Hallett Cove Conservation Park, and then one or two fresher specimens inland at Ngarkat CP.
