The life history of Rachelia extrusa (C. & R. Felder) is described and a significant southern range extension to the Rocky River area of Cape York Peninsula recorded. The larval food plant is Flagellaria indica L. (Flagellariaceae), occurring as distinct forms under closed canopy rainforests. High levels of egg and larval parasitism are recorded from the Rocky River population. The juvenile stages confirm the morphological links of Rachelia Hemming with both the Trapezitinae and Hesperiinae.
