Iphias leucippe; the largest of the Danaidae, Hestia idea; and two unusually large and handsome Nymphalidae — Diadema pandarus, and Charaxes euryalus.
Pieridae, Iphias leucippe; the largest of the Danaidae, Hestia idea; and two unusually large and handsome Nymphalidae -- Diadema pandarus, and Charaxes euryalus.
We believe this may be the third instar of either the Ceanothus Silkmoth, Hyalophora euryalus, or perhaps Glovers Silkmoth, Hyalophora columbia gloveri, or perhaps another species without a common name, Hyalophora kasloensis.
It appears to be Hyalophora kasloensis which may be a self sustaining hybrid of H. euryalus and H. columbia gloveri.
Usually if all of the thoracic and abdominal tubercles are red, the insect gets classified as kasloensis, but could also just be a local race or variation of euryalus.
