Abstract

Trapezites taori Atkins is recorded breeding on Lomandra confertifolia pallida A.T. Lee (Xanthorrhoeaceae) growing along sandstone cliffs and escarpments at Blackdown Tableland National Park and at a new southern location for the butterfly in Carnarvon Gorge National Park, Queensland. A description is given of the previously unknown pupa and comments are made on the apparent close association between T. taori, its foodplant and the sandstone habitat of central Queensland.
