中文名稱: 威氏鐵莧
英文名稱: Painted Copperleaf
學名:Acalypha wilkesiana Muell.-Arg.
別名:金邊桑、紅葉鐵莧、紅邊鐵莧、銅葉鐵莧、紅桑、乳葉鐵莧、凹葉鐵莧

Billy Sham 師兄資料 : 威氏鐵莧在日照不足的地方較易呈綠色,反之,日照充足時偏紅色,和日光攝取量有直接關係,我估計此機制是為了增加日光吸收(日光多為偏紅光,在黃昏更甚,紅色葉會反射紅光,減少日光吸收。

Thank you Mercury Wong to identify this larva of unknown Chrysopidae species (草蛉科), it tends to camouflage with grains or corpse of its preys. In Chinese, the larva is also known as 蚜獅, which mean Lion of aphids or Aphids' Lion.
