I'll now try sending an image of a male common brown butterfly taken in my garden at Normanville SA last week,purely as evidence to confirm my initial comment (and in the knowledge I don't have to prove anything here,it's been in various Butterflies of SA books since I was a child,but I like playing w my camera anyway and always glad to be of assistance to ausmus' team and interested public!)

Also is a very common butterfly in SA,(as I'd already pointed out some months ago!)particularly throughout the Mount Lofty Ranges but much more widespread coastally and subcoastally also.
