標題: [Larva/Pupa] Graphium sarpedon [打印本頁]

This larva looks like a Graphium type larva, but is does not seem to like normal Graphium food plants i.e. Annonaceae: Desmos chinensis or Uvaria macrophylla,  or various Magnolia.  any ideas on the butterfly larva ID or/and on the food plant it is munching?   (submitted on behalf of X-ray).

... I'd suggest photographing the leaf dorsal and ventral surfaces for easier ID?

Woulda done, except they're already in the larva's guts being digested!  8-(

More info, again rather contradictory for most graphiums, it is now eating some sort of citrus leaves, possibly Gat Jai.
