Great Southern White pupa

Ascia monuste monuste


A pale pupa with yellow lines and dark markings fastened to a Culantro Coyote leaf by some silk at the tail end and a single thread around the middle.


On Culantro Coyote plants next to the radish plants that the caterpillars were feeding on.


I took this pupa and put it in a container to find out what sort of butterfly it turns into. You can see the adult butterfly in this spotting, Higher resolution images can be seen here,
