I thought this butterfly too beautiful not to include among the insects on my blog.
Class: Insecta; Order: Lepidoptera; Family: Nymphalidae; Genus: Yoma; Species: sabina
The Lurcher butterfly is dark brown above with a broad orange band across both pairs of wings. The underside pattern is pale brown or brownish grey with a less distinct band. Female butterflies are sightly larger than the male. Their wingspan ranges from 67 to 69 mm.
They inhabit lowland rainforest and vine thicket, often near creeks or moist areas in eastern coastal areas of Cape York Peninsula in Northern Queensland, Australia. Their food includes small herbaceous rainforest plants Dipteracanthusm, Ruellia.
I believe there is also a dog that is called a lurcher; i.e. the dog that appeared in the British TV series "Heartbeat" known as Alfred.
