Other Common Names
Helena Brown, Mountain Brown
I've only seen one of these butterflies. It was basking at the side of a track close to Kuranda, near Cairns. I was not expecting to see this species at the time, as this was in August and according to the books it's basically a summer species. When disturbed, the butterfly flew around slowly and returned to nearly the same spot, which made it much more amenable to taking photos than its relative T. abeona, which usually dances around for ages.
