Host plants, biology and distribution of Acraea terpsicore (Linnaeus, 1758) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): a new butterfly for northern Australia with potential invasive status
The nymphalid butterfly Acraea terpsicore has recently become established in northern Australia where it is spreading rapidly. The immature stages are briefly described, illustrated and compared with those of A.andromacha (Fabricius, 1775) from Australia, and information on its larval food plant specificity, biology and distribution is presented. The species occurs in highly modified open areas, including suburban roadsides, disturbed grassland (i.e. cleared woodland that is regularly slashed...[Show more]
