'Extinct' butterfly rediscovered in South Africa

New location seems better suited than previous known location

March 2013. The Waterberg Copper found after a gap of some 30 years during which it was assumed that it had become extinct. The butterfly was only known from one location, but it has now been found at a new location in greater numbers than before. 

The butterfly has appeared at the Bateleur Nature Reserve which seemingly has plenty of suitable habitat than the previous site.
