Lime Butterfly Caterpillar

Papilio demoleus

Description:

Smooth green 5th instar...now onto pupation and re-emergence.

Habitat:

Rooftop garden. Aegle marmelos (Bael) plant. I have a Bael tree that is 2 storeys high...but does the butterfly lay eggs here? No...my neighbour's plant barely has 20 leaves...yet. What can I say...just thankful she now knows NOT to kill 'em.
