Author's notes

I've reported this gorgeous creature before and Kim has IDed it as this species. The photos don't do it justice. The iridescence down the sides of the wing coverings is beautiful. About 9 mm long.

I photographed the same thing at our place on black wattle foliage, put it up on iNaturalist and had it confirmed as C. juncta. All Calomela feed on wattles I was told.
