Cool find! I'm raising 30 of these in my bedroom. They never stop eating!!!
Wow, lucky you!
First time I ever saw one! Plus it molted(?) in my garage! :D
Cool! I've never seen the caterpillar for this butterfly.
Thank you both!! :)
Yes, Chanty180, you are right. Chamberwell Beauty is the common name in UK.
Hi! I think this is the caterpillar of a very beautiful butterfly. In German it is called " Trauermantel", in English they seem to be called "Camberwell beauty". The scientific name would be "Nymphalis antiopa". Greetings from Germany
