Submitted by: tirvine2020
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found on Piscidia piscipula. Looks like it fed on the leaves by feeding one chunk at a time because multiple leaves on the branch had missing pieces like in the second photo. It was found under the folded flap in the second photo which was sewn shut.
