Something new to raise


A couple of weeks ago I found some mystery caterpillars on my Bush Clover plants. I brought them in and as it turns out they are Funereal Duskywings. This is the very first time I've been able to raise them. They have the smallest chrysalis of any I've had. So far one adult has emerged. I have three more waiting. I'll post photos when they're ready.

It doesn't surprise me that you did your research. I did some of my own too. My results were 100%. All four made it to adulthood and were released. I'm working on photos like a mad woman so hopefully it won't be much longer and you'll be able to see mine.

I'd say that 100% success is something to brag about. They were definitely a lot of fun.
