Prepupa - Strymon melinus

Prepupa - Strymon melinus
Alameda County, California, USA
August 24, 2015
Size: 11 mm bl
The larva left the small, open container where it had been feeding inside bean pods and settled on the underside of the topmost piece of paper lining the floor of the terrarium to pupate. Thus, it pupated upside down. I had provided a piece of bean vine, including leaves, for pupation, but apparently too late.
