Erebidae, Pink-legged Tiger, larva - Spilosoma latipennis

Erebidae, Pink-legged Tiger, larva - Spilosoma latipennis
Heritage Valley, Allamakee County, Iowa, USA
July 4, 2009
Before her demise,, she laid eggs.

This is another Batch rearing.
This was an unsuccessful rearing but I have a lot of larvae photos and am included several of them. In rearing I see variations, not just of instars but of indivuuals. Sometimes, when I find a larva, I only get that one view of it. When I check BG or various ID books, my image might not look much like the images posted, especially when there are only a few. Feel free to frass.
July 3, 2009: larvae emerged from eggs
August 5, 2009: down to 3 larvae
August 14, 2009: oops, 4 larvae
August 27, 2009: no evidence, perhaps in substrate, I can hope
June 11, 2010: looked in substrate, just sick, 4 perfectly formed, but dead, pupae, each wrapped in mat of setae, in a peat cell
