Description

Hard to get close enough on the rare occasions they settled. On the wing they appeared black but almost half the wing size of Percnodaimon merula, and they and settled exclusively over low tussock in a damp basin.

Although larger than the Boulder Coppers in the same area, they were smaller than lowland coppers of this species. Perhaps 30% smaller.

When I saw this butterfly at rest with wings closed I thought it was a blue, the underside of the hind wings appeared light blue.

Zoomed in to get a picture of Earina orchid at about 6m up a silver beech only to find the moth when I viewed the picture. The identity was suggested to me.

Several were flying up to the top of the ridge then turning and flying down towards the bushedge without settling more than briefly. Managed to catch this one with my hat. Next day March 11th there was a cover of snow on the range. Location is obscured.
