Description:

I found this chrysalis/cocoon on a lettuce leaf in my garden. I kept it in a jar until the moth emerged, and then I released it.

Wonderful moth, Grace! Thanks for keeping an eye out on it until it emerges! The pupal stage is one of the most vulnerable for moths! Please add this to my mission, "Moths of the World:"
