I have plenty in my yard in SE Arizona. 2 different types. They grow on my passionflower vine.

Mine have been decimated by the repeated mosquito sprayings, normally this time of year I would have 20-50,000 caterpillars on my passion vine. I have been hard pressed to find any caterpillars and only a few mating pairs.


Very cool though!

Holy moly, such beautiful little buggers! I hope a few do make it through this year.

luckily they are a native species and I have quite literally tons of food for them, it just frustrates me to no end with the indescriminate spraying that kills, not just the mosquitoes, but nearly every other flying insect. They are a food source for most of the little critter that make my yard home too, geckos, anoles, and brown scale lizards that I like and the wasps that i don't really like but tolerate. I'm going to be planting fennel for the swallowtails this fall. I broadcast seed it under my shade shrubs,


This is from last year at this time, an orgy
