Nessus Sphinx--pupa - Amphion floridensis

Nessus Sphinx--pupa - Amphion floridensis
Parkwood, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
June 14, 2009
Size: 30 mm
It finally pupated a couple of days ago, so it took about six weeks to go from egg to pupa. I'm crossing my fingers that I get an adult moth, and happen to be around when it emerges. I have it in a large rearing cage, so I hope that will give it room when it emerges, and then I can get a look at it relatively undamaged.
