Great Southern White pupa

Ascia monuste monuste

Description:

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.

Habitat:

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

Notes:

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, http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/818... Higher resolution images can be seen here, https://www.flickr.com/photos/66454855@N...
