Last night Mary Beth was going to take Bentley out for his before bed business but I offered to do it. As a reward I spotted a shape on the screen to our back window. One never knows what will show up on the house and this was a nice surprise.
Wavy-lined Emerald-Synchlora aerata. A nice pristine individual with nary a scale missing.
I was happy to see this but should not have been surprised as my Boneset had quite a few of the larvae a few weeks ago. I posted one of the larvae but will drop it in below so you don’t have to click for comparison.
Quite a metamorphic change. Actually it was a month ago to the day that I made the larva image. For those who did not see the prior post, this caterpillar camouflages itself with whatever plant debris it comes across. Obviously the disguise worked for this one.
