Castalian Springs, Sumner County, Tennessee, USA
June 6, 2018
The total time from egg to larva was 9 days. The hatching time was almost 3 hours. It started after 2 a.m. Very fast species! Not to mention very tiny! Its behavior was to move up and down the midrib of the oak leaf. (still under observation at this time)
