keep or frass your adults?
Hi Alan - I noticed today that you said that your photos of adults of this species were taken at Butterfly World, which I take to mean in captivity. Should we frass them now, since people have submitted 5 observations of wild adults in the years since? Or would you prefer to keep them up here? (we should 100% keep your caterpillar and chrysalis pics up, as nobody has submitted photos of those in the wild yet)
