Mammoth Cave National Park, Edmonson County, Kentucky, USA

Size: See picture
Found in large aggregation on an "orchid-like" plant. Scale in cm.

Moved
Moved from ID Request. Kentucky - wow! Now you have to find the adults and photograph them. Was it on a plant growing in the water someplace?

 
Care and feeding?
I'm going to attempt to get it to pupate so we can get a picture of the adult. Any ideas on what to feed it?
