Polygonia interrogationis

The question mark female butterfly sticks its eggs under a leave and piles them like icecream balls on an icecream cone but upside down.

She can pile up (down) to ten eggs one over the other. The caterpillar has sturdy hairs that keep parasites away and does not take care to hide so much.

I raise them on stinging nettles but one could use elm.
