This species is not visible in the Butterfly species lists, so I tried to add it thru Admin/Manage taxonomy. But the system says it already exists.

PS... This may be an issue with the recent taxonomy uploads by Jenny Smits. Perhaps she can clarify.

Ahh.. the problem mentioned above is gone because this butterfly has been added to the taxonomy by Jenny.

Hi michaelb and RobParnell - YES it was me! Sorry some temporary teething issues from copying taxonomy and species lists from our two sister sites Budawang Coast Nature Map and Canberra Nature Map. They had slightly different taxonomy hierarchy for insects....so we got both....and Butterflies were one of the worst offenders. I hope I have cleaned it up, but please let me know if you see any other issues.
