ovipositing on leaf of Milkweed in our garden July 3,
butterflies we reared in 2006 be the ancestors of this female?
| Photo Details - ŠNicky Davis
On July 3 2016 we observed a female Monarch flying
about the garden, then ovipositing on the Milkweed
growing there. Could this be from the
offspring of the Monarach we reared in 2006?
On August 26, 2006, ova and larvae
located on private property in Salt Lake
County with permission granted from property
owner. All these photos are not of the same
individual. The larvae that developed from
the two ovum collected are much larger than
the two larvae collected as young instars.
Male is bright orange
with wide black borders and black veins; hindwing
has a patch of scent scales. Upperside of female
is orange-brown with wide black borders and
blurred black veins. Both sexes have white spots
on borders and apex.
