Welcome To Pupa’s House

20 Mar

Sandy was able to lend us a container for the critter, so our white pupa, still unidentified but possibly a moth, has a new home.

Gary, of Not Very Far Away, a nature blog, says the narrow white cocoon may hold the pupa of a cecropia silkmoth or a Callosamia promethea moth. Both are beautiful and pictured below.  I will continue to research and share my findings — but it’s exciting!

She’s inside a clear plastic container with a vented orange lid, sitting in the sun, under a crate.  Stop by and say hi!  callosamia-promethea-female-6-23-10-1
