NEW BUTTERFLY [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 23 August 1927
NEW BUTTERFLY A very handsome butterfly was some time ago secured by Mr D. Campbell on the sandstone table- land in the Alligator River country and loaned by him to the Auckland Museum. Another specimen is in the possession of Mr J. A. Porter, of Darwin. When examined by Mr Norman B. Tindale, the assistant Entomologist of the South Austral- ian Museum this butterfly proved to be new to science and has been described and named by that gentleman. It belongs to the genius Papilio and has been termed Paplio Leosthenes Geimbia, the latter name being derived from that of a tribe of natives (Geimbia) inhabit- ing the Alligator River Tableland. The butterfly mentioned has an expanse of wings of 74 mm. and it boasts a wonderful series of colours ranging from faint greenish yelow at the base of the forewings with &nbsp; broad black bands to bluish grey, prominent orange spots, black, and beneath the forewings a rich bluish black.

DIGGERS FANCY DRESS BALL -*n At a committee meeting of the Returned Soldiers Association last Tuesday evening arrangements were finalised for holding the usual Fancy Dress Ball during Race Week. The Committee are going to try and eclipse anything they have yet done in the way of dances. The first in- novation will be the use, for the first time, of a new piano which has been kindly donated to the League by their old friend Mr Ernest Jolly.

The letter from Mr Beurteax on behalf of Mr Jolly relieved them of a great worry and was much appreciated. A cablegram is to be despatched to London thanking Mr Jolly. The League recently purchased 48 new chairs which will also 'help to make the spell between dances more comfortable. In connectio...
