Observation notes: There were hundreds of these butterflies in the dryer part of the salt marsh near Peters River within the Bathurst city limits on this hot sunny day. This was my third day in a row observing them. They were flying just above the grasses and landing frequently. While some fed on Sea Lavender, many were mating. This particular male tried for several minutes to mate with a female but was unsuccessful.

Coordinator notes: BAMONA stupidly refuses to accept L. dospassosi as a species, so I have to call it L. dorcas. Sorry about that. Ross Layberry
