Terrific photos Kerri.
It's feeding on Epacris paludosa flowers.

Thanks Max. And I realise that the butterfly I saw in Merimbula on Friday 1/2/19 was not this species. It appeared far more blue ... so I'm pretty sure it was Graphium choredon (the Blue Triangle)! Sadly no photos, so perhaps we'll never know. But perhaps someone else will get a photo and a make a sighting.

Hi Kerri, I just confirmed an old record of that species from somewhere up the northish end of the region. I see you've updated the name for me. I didn't realise it had changed, though since my reference was a book published in 2002 I should have realised it would have!
