Abstract

Hesperilla mastersi marakupa is described and figured, this is an unexpected addition to the list of Tasmanian butterflies; the food plant of Oreisplanus munionga larana Couchman is also recorded from this State. Graphium macleayanus ssp. wilsoni from the Atherton Tableland and ssp. moggana from western Tasmania are distinguished from the typical race from Port Jackson. The subspecies of Bindahara phocides occurring in north-eastern Queensland which authors have placed as either sugriva Horsfield or isabella Felder is nov, designated ssp. yurgama. In continuation of the study of Pseudalmenus chlorinda Blanchard, the name myrsilus Doubleday and Hewitson is revived for the brilliant race from the Tasman Peninsula, and a remarkably melanic population in the Conara area is separated as ssp. conara. The hitherto unknown female of Heteronympha penelope panope Waterhouse from the Cradle Mt. district is described.
