photographing and learning about wildlife
The wingspan is about 50 mm. There is an orange and brown spot on the undersurface of each hindwing which may be visible on the upper surface. Depending on the location the adults are most common in Autumn, particularly in April.
The larvae feed on Acacia dealbata and Acacia melanoxylon.
Had to take this photo through a glass jar, as the subject was not otherwise willing to stay still.
