Pupating Oleander Hawk Moth (Day 14)

Daphnis nerii


1 & 2 Ventral view of pre-emergent pupa, with dark, symmetrical markings clearly visible at the wing cases. On day 16, the markings of the wings are quite visible under the pupal case. From now on I had better be vigilant if I want to observe the moth emerging.
