Possible OE infected butterfly


As discussed with Jacqui.

Found this butterfly sandwiched between two layers of windbreaker material. Had hatched from its chrysalis that was made between the two layers and I had no idea it was there. So not sure what the pupa looked like before it hatched.

Butterfly is female, and has white tiny dandruff like stuff all over it and on its abdomen. Unfortunately cannot get it to open its wings so I can take a photo of the wings open. But you can see how its wings are bent to one side. 🙁

Have taken the other pupa discussed last night off the swan plant and put into a glass jar.
