23 February 2017: I collected a small twig with a few eggs on Cliffortia sp, as one does.
8 March 2017: The eggs started hatching. Turned out to be more than just a few. Hurrah!
5 July 2017: After several moults the cats are starting to look very familiar. I'm pretty sure it's Cape lappets. They are happy to eat any of a number of Cliffortia species I collect at my convenience, although it's starting to be a challenge to keep up with the growing appetites.
