Hemileuca nuttalli calling
Just this morning 5-13-2014 one of the pupa of H. nuttalli emerged and is calling. This picture shows the calling pose. Hopefully I will have a male emerge soon. These were raised from ova received in 2012. The ova were taken out of the refrigerator on 31 March 2013, ova hatched 3 April 2013. On the 6 of June most of the caterpillars had gone underground. By the 11 June all the caterpillars had made pupae. This is the fist one to emerged.
