Freshly laid by a Papilio anactus, on a new lime tree leaf this morning.
Citrus trees, new growth.
I watched the female lay this egg. Due to the proliference of parasitical wasps on both the eggs and caterpillars, and having tried to raise a caterpillar only to have this happen, I'm going to try and raise this egg myself. Seen in Ascot Vale, Melbourne
