Sorry about the poor quality heavily cropped photos! During a quick visit to WHP yesterday afternoon I saw this butterfly flying around. After watching and following it for a while, it landed about six metres up a tree and I was finally able to get some distant photos. I have had a go at ID and I'm fairly sure it's a female Ogyris abrota (dark purple azure). There were quite a few patches of mistletoe in the area, which is the host plant for the caterpillars of this species. A rare butterfly and a lucky find!
I saw this small insect flying around a black wattle. It was fast and difficult to photograph, and at first I thought it was a lycid beetle. I managed to get a few photos before it flew away. When I zoomed into the photo I noticed the moth-like legs and googled lycid mimic moth to discover that it is indeed a moth. I think possibly Snellenia lineata, but I'm not exactly sure of the species to I have left it as Snellenia sp. for now. A fascinating mimic, complete with lycid like antennae. Lycid beetles are poisonous so it seems advantageous to mimic them. Two photos uploaded.
This antlion lacewing flew up from the grass as I walked through. It landed and then flew several times. Luckily I was able to keep an eye on it and get some photos once it settled. Two photos uploaded. Distoleon bistrigatus ID by Ken Harris via Bowerbird.
