Note that the larvae and pupae are now in an Acacia mearnsii ( possibly A decurrens, I have trouble with these two)- NOT A dealbata.  Although they are investigated by the imagos the nearest A dealbata are further off the bitumen road.

For the many COG lepidopterists:
(T)here is a spectacular colony of Jalmenus evagoras (Imperial Hairstreak) in the Australian National Botanic Gardens at present.
It is at the top of the rainforest gully but up on the southern side beside the upper bitumen road opposite the larger of the two bottle trees which are in Section 120/117.
There are butterflies, ants larvae and pupae in clusters on a small Acacia dealbata.
