Thank you induruh & thank you bayucca. I agree with you that this looks more like alitha from the pictures I'm looking at, though believe me...I am far from an expert! :) Thanks for all your help.

Eurema blanda is not found in Australia.
I think it is either Eurema alitha:

or Eurema hecabe:

I slightly tend to Alitha. Most of the Hecabe has a much dark bigger spot. You have anyway to verify!
