Other Common Names
This was a species I had searched for many times, but never had any luck. Then I was walking along a trail near Lawson when I saw one or two of them flying around. They landed frequently, but not for long, but kept on returning to pretty much the same spot.
The following year I found them again in the same site - more individuals and over a wider area. The ones I saw were all males.
The specimens I saw around Brisbane in November 2008 were much bigger than those I'd seen in NSW and WA - absolute monsters! In September 2010 I was surprised to see several specimens around a hilltop at Glenbrook, at a site I'd been to many times before in the spring without ever seeing this species.
