    Simon Ong says

    According to http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/icad.12038/abstract and http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/nymp/terpsicore.html , this species has been recorded in Australia only from three years ago and is spreading rapidly. Several of them were feeding among weeds in an area where woodland has been cleared.
