dc.descriptionTargeted searches for butterflies/diurnal moths at Wongalara Station, NT, were conducted over a 11-day period in the mid dry season 2012. Total survey effort was about 60 hrs during which a total of 249 records were obtained representing 59 species (52 butterflies, 7 diurnal moths). Among these, 12 taxa (2 species, 10 subspecies) are endemic to the Top End and/or north-western Australia. The most significant discoveries were new locations for a number of species: three of these (Candalides delospila, C. geminus, Deudorix smilis) represent substantial range extensions from their previous known extent of occurrence, while two (Comocrus behri, Hestiochora xanthocoma) represent new locations of species that otherwise have been rarely sampled in the Top End. Wongalara Station preserves an interesting and unusual mix of species associated with different bioregions, including sandstone specialists of central Arnhem Land, monsoon vine thicket specialists that occur more widely across the higher rainfall areas of the Top End, and a component associated with the lower rainfall (semi-arid) areas of the monsoon tropics.en
