This caterpillar was found on a net I had put up on Huisache. It pupated on 6/23/16 and emerged 7/12/16. The caterpillar did not change in appearance much over the 11 days that I watched it. It began wandering, so I added some dirt to the container and it happily pupated. I did not get a photograph of the pupa because it was buried in the dirt.
