Hi Chris,
Your lovely butterfly, Cressida cressida, has been saddled with the unfortunate common name, the Big Greasy, due to its transparent wings. TrekNature also indicates: “It is a taxanomic puzzle as its closest relatives are to be found in Argentina. ” The Big Greasy was featured on a stamp in Australia in 1997.
