Intriguing moth pupae I found in my garden.
And all wonderful spottings too! It's great to be able to show the different stages development of moths and butterflies - not something we are always able to see. This one will grow into a stunning adult!
Thanks, Neil! I posted it 4 years ago. It turned out to be the pupal form of one of my very few other posted spottings.
Wonderful spotting. Nice photo too!
Fantastic! What a coincidence. Thanks, Ornithoptera!
That is the pupae of the Tersa sphinx moth, (Xylophanes tersa).https://bugguide.net/node/view/864338/bg...
