Ascia monuste monuste
Light gray, nearly white butterfly with yellow spots behind it's eyes and under the base of it's wings.
Adults found feeding on flowering basil plants.
I found the caterpillars eating my radish plants and when one went to pupate I collected the pupa and after a week this butterfly emerged. It left a drop of blood red fluid on the leaf that the pupa was attached too. I'll post a spotting soon of the caterpillars and adults feeding outside. You can see the spottings with the pupa and caterpillars here, http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/824... and http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/815...
