Oriental Emperors (Sasakia charonda)

Adding a touch of (appropriate) diversity to the blog. I have recently received a shipment of Sasakia charonda larvae direct from a new collaborating researcher in Japan. I thought some of you might like to see these wonderful larvae.

I hope to rear these larvae to maturity and test if some of my more recent findings are equally applicable to other iridescent members of the Apaturinae. If people are interested, I can always post further images as the larvae develop.
