Krakadouw looper reared

22 September 2018:

Inchworm found dangling on a sedge-ish leaf right over the steep path we were battling to conquer. I'm afraid I did not have enough hands to take pictures at this stage, which is just as well as the caterpillar did not feed.

30 September 2018:

The caterpillar pupated without a cocoon at the bottom of its tub.

5 April 2019

I was astonished to find that a wingless moth had emerged. This is a new one for me: a few Geometrids do come with wingless females! Live and learn.

I cheated and kept 2 final instar larvae (c. 40mm) - of a hoard that crawled over the drive under their Turraea floribunda food tree searching for a pupation spot - and had to be saved from squashing.
Pupation: 08/01/2019
Eclosion: 22/01/2019
(The other fella has just crawled out his pupation soil as I'm typing this - see: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19855437)

Description

A movement on the road caught my eye and on approaching was thinking of either something had caught a chameleon or it was injured and thrashing about in death throes. They were absolutely still after this flurry of movement, just eyes moving. One brief flurry again, followed by another long period of almost absolute motionless, another brief flurry and they parted. Never seen one as pitch black as the female, marking around the eyes standing out almost as clearly as under UV light. Both returned to more normal colours rapidly after parting, both removed by hand to the relative safety of near by shrubs. Total time actually witnessed 1 hour and 5 minutes, but I believe from others that they started mating some time before that.
Comments of selling price of a breeding pair shocking at R12 000 or there abouts!

I was photographing the adult and couldn't believe it when the nymph came charging in from stage left - the adult ignored it completely.

I have only found these on Anginon difforme (in two separate locations so far).
