Port Kennedy and Point Peron (WA) - November 2008.
Sugarloaf Rock WA - November 2017
I found this butterfly in several spots around Port Kennedy and Point Peron, almost always close to Acacia plants. When away from the wattles they were often hard to approach, but once settled on the wattles they tended to stay put, except to chase off another butterfly. At Port Kennedy I saw a female laying eggs on a prostrate Acacia plant, whilst at Point Peron I found larvae on a different Acacia species.
