@ashish, trima kasih atas suportnya, saya juga tdk punya latar belakang ilmu biologi, saya hanya cinta pada alam dan mahluk hidup, dan hobby memfotonya, maka saya bergabung di project noah ini. Maaf saya tidak bisa menjelaskan dengan baik tentang ulat ini, semoga keterangan saya bisa dipahami, ulat ini sejak kecil sampai jadi kepompong saya biarkan ditanaman saya hingga semua daun adenium nya habis., dan ulatnya menjadi kepompong di tanah pot, sebagian badannya tertanam di tanah, tapi saya tidak sempat melihat kupu kupunya atau ngengatnya, terakhir saya lihat kepompongnya sudah kosong.

Yes I saw it , Ashish I can't explain in English so in Indonesia language. (saya melihat ulat tersabut dari masih sangat kesil antara 1, 5 cm sampai dia tumbuh dewasa dan menjadi kepompong/ pupa, kepopongnya berwarna coklat berukuran panjang antara 6 cm, dn anaehnya dia / kepopong itu tertanam sebagian di dalam tanah, jadi mnampaknya ketika ulat tersebut akan menjadi kepompong membenamkan badangnya ketanah, saya memang sengaja tidak mengusir ulat tsb kerena inginmengetahui seperti apa keupu kupunya, tetapi sayang saya tidak melihat kupukpunya, terakhir nkali saya lihat keponpongya sudah kosong jadi kemungkinan ulat tersebut sudah berubah menjadi kupu kupu dan entah kemana tidak saya tahu lagi.)
