Cloudless Sulphur Caterpillar

Hi again Eduardo,
Thank you for submitting your four caterpillar photos from Brazil.  We are posting the Cloudless Sulphur Caterpillar,
Phoebis sennae marcellina, and we will try to post others if time permits.  Cloudless Sulphurs are now residents in the Los Angeles area where the What’s That Bug? offices are located.  They are not native, but cultivation of their food plants, the cassia tree, in gardens has provided a source of food for the caterpillars enabling the species to establish itself.  We are linking to the Butterflies of America page on the Cloudless Sulphur.
