I have seen a few of these pupas during this rainy season on only one plant. They are interesting in that they always pupate on the top side of the leaf leaving themselves exposed to heavy rains. I only saw them one unidentified plant and each of the 4 or so that I saw never made it to hatch. They were all eaten by other insects. This speciman measures around 1" long.
