Bronze Flat Butterfly
The Bronze Flat rests with its wings flat, which is unusual as most butterflies rest with their wings held vertically.
The Bronze Flat lives in urban areas, forests and woodlands.

The majority of images of Lithosiinae presented on these pages were taken from specimens housed in the Australian National Insect Collection (ANIC) (CSIRO, Canberra). I would like to thank the staff and researchers at ANIC for their generous assistance in providing me access to this collection, and I acknowledge the depth of effort and the investment of staff time that has gone into building and curating this splendid resource. In particular, I would like to thank Ted Edwards and Marianne Horak for their assistance.
