Abstract We report 52 new locations in north-western Australia for 22 species of butterfly. Six records are of three species rarely reported in the region, the Fiery Jewel Hypochrysops ignita, the Two-spotted Line-blue Nacaduba biocellata and the Long-tailed Pea-blue Latnpides boetkus. Records of the Orange Ringlet Hypocysta adiante, Spotted Pea-blue Euchrysops cnejus and Small Dusky-blue Candalides erinus, species previously reported as occurring patchily in north-western Australia, are sufficient to suggest that they occur throughout the region. The ease with which new location records were obtained beyond the Darwin area suggests that much remains to be learned about the distribution of butterflies in the remoter parts of north-western Australia.
