Cepora perimale scyllara
- This page contains information and pictures about Caper Gull Butterflies in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.
They also known as Australian Gull.
- Wingspan 60mm
Caterpillar of Australian Gull is green with yellow dots and white hairs.
They feed on wild Caper. They fly rapidly during the day. They are fairly
common in Brisbane bushlands.
- Pictures were taken on White Hill top on late summer. At first we
thought this butterfly was the Yellow
Albatross. Both butterflies were yellow and white and colour with black
wing margins. However, their wing margin patterns are quite different.
