Pupa : Can you tell what it is yet?
Comments(5) # Pupa : Can you tell what it is yet? london e17

I found this pupa amongst the (now much larger) Peacock Butterfly caterpillars that we first visited just over a week ago. But it doesn't look quite like the pupa of the Peacock, I think it probably belongs to a moth but I'm not sure which one. Fascinating all the same and you can already make out the lines of the wings forming within the case. I've created a Google Map with a few of the locations featured in LDNP including today's which was shot at the pond I call St.Peter's Pond (due to its proximity to the slightly bizarrely named St.Peter's in the Forest Church, do let me know if it's of any interest.
