Other Common Names
Dotted Blue, Buff-spotted Blue
I've found these butterflies in a particular part of the Ingleburn Reserve, an area of open eucalypt forest. The butterflies like to patrol along the paths, and appear to defend territoties in these areas.
I've also found them at East Hills, in a quite different habitat; there is a heath understorey and fewer trees. The butterflies are relatively common at this location.
Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains was a particularly good site for this species. In September 2005 these butterflies were very common around the Oaks Fire Trail.
