Black and White Ruddy Daggerwing Chrysalis - Marpesia petreus

Black and White Ruddy Daggerwing Chrysalis - Marpesia petreus
West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
May 10, 2012
This is an unusual coloration for a Ruddy Daggering Pupa. The pupa is normally a greenish yellow. It was found in one of the aerial roots of a ficas tree. If anyone knows if this is a normal but infrequent color variation, please let me know. Thanks.
