Hi David,

I hadnt seen a pupa with such tufts before but the colour seems quite a bit different from the other black arches whic you hatched out?

The orange banding is extremely like a fox moth pupa but I dont think its that as it should be in a cocoon and the tufts dont seem right either, just mentioning it incase its a relative- the colour puts me off Black Arches?

Cathal.
