Do you know the species of the host plant?

This was during a BioBlitz and I know the expert botanist did mention the species, but I was too preoccupied with the caterpillars at the moment. Some brassica, I recall. I'll try to find out. @dagendresen, did you note the host plant species?

I added pictures from the same observation of the same butterfly larvas and the host brassica plant at http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3031052
I added occurrenceID, organismID and eventID, if you want to tie our reported observations together, you should include your own occurrenceID, but you could use the same organismID for both butterfly observations - and we could include the same eventID for both butterfly and host plant (if we can identify the host plant). In addition we could build a DarwinCore resourceRelationship (eg. preysUpon) between the butterfly and host plant...
dwc:organismID = urn:uuid:3ac2f3a0-0b21-11e6-a837-0800200c9a66
dwc:eventID = urn:uuid:63498e10-0b21-11e6-a837-0800200c9a66

I added the brassica host plant at http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3036330 with a new dwc:organismID=urn:uuid:78988470-0bbb-11e6-a837-0800200c9a66 (for the brassica plant) and the same eventID. I built a associatedOccurrences realtionship between all these (so far) three occurrences. We might of course consider building a resourceRelationship relation (preysUpon) - but I did not do that yet.

@mattiamenchetti with assistance from @duarte the host plant was identified as European Searocket (Cakile maritima). See http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3036330

Thank you so much! I added the tag of the host plant.
