Help us re-establish the Yellowish Sedge-skipper Butterfly habitat at Magazine Road Wetlands, Greenfields Wetlands off of Salisbury Highway
The Yellowish Sedge-skipper Butterfly is host-specific, which means it only raises its caterpillars on a single plant species; Thatching Grass (Gahnia filum).
The butterfly used to flourish in Gahnia sedgelands on the northern Adelaide coastal plains. But it has not been seen in the area since 1985 and is believed to be regionally extinct.
So, the more Thatching Grass sedgeland we plant in the area the better chance this butterfly has!
This project is supported by CVA, Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and City of Salisbury through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program and Ingham’s
