Other Common Names
Australian Gull, Northern Gull
This was a bit of a fortunate one for me. I spotted the butterfly feeding from Lantanas at the bottom of a bank next to the path I was walking along. I was able to get a couple of photos, and at the time I thought the butterfly was a female Appias paulina, so I was pleasantly surprised when I downloaded the photos to see that it was actually this species instead.
This species was common in some spots around Darwin, especially East Point. Their undersides were noticeably whiter than specimens seen in Queensland.
