Oooops, thought i posted some pics already....I didn't. Doing it now. This one is about as big around my pinky now, maybe a little bigger. Been out there for about 2 weeks since first spotting.

I in Eye -Jaclynne Cain, here is your spotting,
Are you talking about this?

Perhaps your spotting is not the larva of Pachliopta aristolochiae; larva of Pachliopta aristolochiae should be black in color and with a white band. If you wish to check it, you can follow the link to Wikipedia. :)

Would this be the butterfly that comes from the fuzzy black and orange caterpillar I just found? Check my page if you get a chance.
