I'm not actually sure what saltbushes look like, but there must be plenty of them in the Ingleburn recreation reserve and at Mount Annan, because there are a lot of these butterflies in those locations.

Most of the time these butterflies are to be found flying low down or settling on low grasses and flowers. But at Mount Annan I've noticed them flying higher up around the Bottlebrush plants, and they appear to be able to feed from the flowers.
