Hello, bugman and devoted staff,
These caterpillars repeatedly defoliate the plumeria, which suffer no apparent ill effects. Can you tell me what these turn into?
Many thanks.

Hi Tanya,
The bright colors of these Tetrio Sphinxes are quite spectacular and they really do look like fantasy creations of the imagination.

    I admire this photo; it is simply wonderful – and shows, that these caterpillars also munch the blossoms of Frangipani trees, like those of Daphnis nerii on Oleander. Thank You very much for sharing. This site is a neverending discovery.

    With thankful wishes
