Strathbogie Ranges - Nature View

Ecology, landscape and natural history in and around the Strathbogie Ranges, Australia.


Twenty-six species of butterfly (not including the skippers and darts) have been recently recorded from the Strathbogie Ranges (as far as I am aware).

Perhaps the best on-line reference for Victorian butterflies is the National Museum of Victoria’s Bioinformatics website. Though some of the images aren’t the best, you can also generate maps based on species, or geographic area.

Search this site for all references to butterflies by typing ‘butterfly’ into the search box, at right.

Most records have been provided by Ben Brook, ‘Peppermint Ridge” Bonnie Doon Rd, Toorour/Strathbogie.
