We're not sure about "hyrtaca", but definitely "type 2" species.

Found some more on the same sort of trees in Aberdeen Country Park; July 18, 2008

The trees have been ID'd by both the HK Herbarium and by Cecily as Syzygium sp., but Cecily narrowed it down (provisionally, based on the photos) to the odoratum species.  As a trial, I gave some larvae some S. jambos leaves to try, but they showed no interest at all.

Thanks for the updated images; saves me a trip over to check.  I'd estimate they are about 3rd instar, so should have another 2-3 weeks to mature.  Please keep the thread updated as you're able.  

I still have two larvae from this cluster still alive, and switched over to Macaranga tanarius as a foodplant.

Thanks again!  Does this mean there's only four larvae left out of the cluster near the bathrooms?  (i.e. is it the same cluster?)

regards
David

Hi David,

I have only saw four larvae staying there...not sure if the other larvae have climbed up to a higher position or not...

Yes, that is the tree near bathroom... for the cluster.... it should be the same  (I think)....

Are these also Metanastria larvae? Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, was in a hurry and just used my compact camera to get a quick shot.

Thanks
