    Edith (in Florida) has just released a great article on Oe, or Ophryocystis elektroscirrha if you prefer to use the full title.

    ;

    If the pupae are infected with this pathogens, then you are more likely to have more "failures" or deformities when the Monarch butterflies emerge – as the butterflies have already been weakened by Oe and have more of a struggle.

    Thanks Edith!
