Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Noticed this chrysalis on some tall fennel, another fennel plant right next to the one with the B. Swallowtail caterpillar on it, at Baker Wetlands. Never seen one of their chrysalises before. Not sure if it was "live", empty (small opening at top), or even perhaps dead. Was on the main center stem, approximately midway up the plant, which was about 3.5-4' tall. Size: Approx. 1.25-1.5" in length. Weather: 81 degrees, 43% humidity, fairly clear skies with some cloud cover.
