Last week the question was: Is this Saturniid moth pupa a male or female?
This is a female. Below is a good photo from UF that explains how to tell the difference. The antennae are the easiest characteristic to look at.
This pupa was brought to me while it was still a caterpillar in early October. A few days later it began pupating and has yet to finish. The pupa is the overwintering stage of this moth, so now that spring is here, it should finish pupating soon. Here is what the caterpillar looked like when I got it.
I’ll post photos of the adult moth when it emerges.
Here is this week’s question: What is this little insect I found on a rapeseed flower earlier this week?
