I brought a Dasychira chekiangensis caterpillar home and let it pupate, turns out it was already carrying the seed of this one …

The caterpillar started to pupate on April 16.

I used the locale of the original observation here, because that's where it would have hatched.

Portia was sitting next to a Cyclosa web. Took a few minutes waiting, then jumped straight at the Cyclosa in the center of the web, killing it. Spent 10-20 in the web center, then dropped down to a branch, continuing to digest. More than half an hour later, was still at the same position, digesting.

I'm making this observation "captive" because I took this Portia home for pictures, and released it here the day after.

When moles find a lot of worms, more than they could eat, the knot them to avoid escaping, and keep them in some place, something as a food safe...
