Curetis thetis

Curetis thetis

It was a pleasant day for all of us when Girish discovered the eggs of Curetis thetis on Pongamia pinnata  leaves in the school campus. We carefully watched the egg till it hatched and collected the larvae to prevent from getting parasitoised. The life-cycle was observed in the campus and we released the adult butterfly after it emerged from the pupa.
