Descripción

A very quick view (no photo) of an Australian painted lady basking in my front garden around 1pm. I saw it fly down (much paler in flight than yellow admiral), it opened its wings for 2 seconds, then took off before I could snap a shot with the phone camera. Mild day, around 18C, following a long period of wet and cool weather.

This is only the second sighting I have made in Timaru, the first being in the 1970s. Have seen them in Nelson area on occasion. Perhaps there are greater numbers than usual?

Descripción

A small darkling beetle (12mm) quite distinct from the larger M. opacula that is very common in South Canterbury. Two have been found in pitfall traps and under a stone in a dry riverbed area during a lizard relocation project. The area is due for dairy development, and lizards are being relocated to a nearby habitat.

Several males and one female observed on or flying around an area of low-growing Muhlenbeckia complexa planted in the garden outside South Canterbury Museum around 10 years ago. This is the first time coppers have been seen here. Nearest known population is about a kilometre away on the coast, with a lot of buildings and tarseal in between
