Did you get photos
of the larva, the pupa or cocoon, spent pupa, or herbivory? Thanks.

Don't photo those things,MJ.
Don't photo those things,MJ. My main interest is native plants and the micros that feed on them, and I just show the adults that feed on the plants. Monterey County has a great assemblage of native plants and we have raised hundreds on micros that are probably new.
