Description

Was a pupa this morning. This is one of 8 found earlier this year on parsley, one became a butterfly months ago. There were months of difference in time between becoming pupa and butterfly, with only a day or 2 difference in dates hatched from eggs on same plant. They were brought inside, but when a looper got parasitized, moved these guys outside away from the tiny gnat sized ? Wasps?
