Elhamma australasiae

Elhamma australasiae


This specimen shows an extraordinary red colour in hind wings and thorax, an exposed abdominal tuft and seemingly larger. Estimated at 24mm long overall.


In a local nature reserve adjoining a national park.


Many Elhamma australasiae ♂ have been seen this year and although there is some natural variation this red has never been seen before. The males of Elhamma also show a white flash on the side but this one also seems different and wider.
