Barred Sulphur Female
caterpillar was found munching on the yellow flowers of a Cassia Tree.
I believe it was a Christmas Senna Cassia.
Here is a picture showing the top of the caterpillar.
stayed in her pupa for 10 days.
On 10/28/10 she emerged.
very difficult to get a good picture with the wings folded down.
No butterflies were hurt during this picture!
The female Orange Barred Sulphur does not have the orange bar on the forewing like the male.
