User's notes

A single Pale Triangle was visiting a flowering Buddleia shrub (Butterfly Bush) at the same time as a small number of Macleay's Swallowtails in a garden at Dr George Mountain. Looking up some references I have, this butterfly species appears to be well south of it's normal range of distribution.

Range (shown in Braby) as all of Queensland east coast to not far south of the NSW border and vagrant to about Jervis Bay.

Braby is one of my references, making butterfly ID easy. I suspect climate change will push the range of many other butterfly sp. further south. I was very surprised to see this Pale Triangle here, as the only other place I have seen and photographed one was in Kakadu NP!
