The smaller of the two caterpillars that I reported finding in the garden on 9/15/2020 is now a chrysalis inside the mesh cage I put it in to protect it from predators. I have the cage in the warmest part of the garden to try and help the development along, and I am hoping that it will be able to eclose before frost.
The larger of the two caterpillars I had reported finding on 9/15/2020 unfortunately died when it was trying to form a chrysalis during the past week.
