Good idea. It's time to set up a light-trp and wait for the quality to come to you. I agree about the shape of the costal margin in particular - not quite right - I thought it might just be the angle of the shot. But I have found several species which vary the positions of wings ranging from tented to spread so maybe that's not too indicative. Hope that saddle is not too uncomfortable.

The wing shapes are much more defined and rounded on this one with hooks at the tips and wider rear wings. This one holds its wings in a much wider array as well.
Thanks. I am a bit slow getting back in the saddle these days. I will probably take a slow approach this season

Might be a faded out version of this one (or genus) http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...
