Life cycle of Metamorpha elissa

Some aspects of the biology and life cycle of Metamorpha elissa elissa are presented for the first time based on the study of the different preimaginal instars. The species usesTrichanthera gigantea (Acanthaceae) as host plant for its larvae. From three eggs obtained at the moment they were ovipositedit was possible to obtain the complete life cycle under lab controlled conditions after 37 days.
