Walnut Sphinx Moth ( Pupa )

Amorpha juglandis


My brother went to Pennsylvania, to visit some of his relatives. During his visit, he would go exploring in the woods, each day, looking for Moth Cocoons, and Butterfly Pupae, to take back to Florida with him. This pupa, was one and one eighth of an inch long, and one fourth of an inch wide. The color of this pupa, was a dark, black color. One end of this pupa was pointed, and one end of this pupa, was rounded.


My brother found this pupa in the woods, in the state of Pennsylvania. Deciduous woodlands.
