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.
