Zelotypia stacyi, male, ex collection Harald Schraeder

Collected at Tuncurry, New South Wales, on 4 April 1920, presumably leg. H. Schrader & ex coll. Allen Sundholm. Harald Schrader amassed one of the finest collections of Lepidoptera ever to have existed in Australia, and housed it in incredibly crafted wood cabinets, complete with inlaid wood depicting Australian butterflies (eg. Ornithoptera priamus and Papilio ulysses). An absorbing description of the collection and its history can be read at schraderbutterflies.blogspot.com.au/ .
