The green pigment is unstable (degrades in sunlight) and fades quickly to a pale washed out pinky-brown.

The green ground colour is made from an unstable pigment that fades and goes pale brown with exposure to sunlight over time. The individual in this photo looks to be a little less than one week since eclosion.
