Submitted by: Ansel Oommen
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Larva was first found on June 8, 2018, feeding on Aristolochia clematitis. I found this intriguing considering the poisonous nature of the plant and the fact that the species does not appear to be a known pipevine specialist. Larva pupated on June 18, 2018 and eclosed June 28, 2018. Photos of all stages (excluding egg) have been added.
