Thank you pmbagga & thanks Cindy & Scott for the suggestions. I thought I got another shot of this guy, but I didn't. Will remember wings next time. Thanks for you help :)

Hi Leanne, the ID I gave you is a guess. I can't see the veins of the wings in your pic and the listed plants this species prefers doesn't match your habitat but I think it's safe to accept the genus.

Thanks Argy. The one on the link doesn't seem to have the same markings on his shoulders?
