Your letter to the bugman: Hi Bugman,
Guess I’ll need to be extra careful when watering the plants in my back yard. Can you identify what will emerge from this chrysalis?
How you want your letter signed: Jeff Bremer
This is definitely a butterfly chrysalis, and we are pretty certain it is a Brush-Footed Butterfly in the family Nymphalidae, but we have not had luck with a definitive identification. This is a rather distinctive chrysalis and we don’t know why the identification is giving us trouble. We will attempt to contact Keith Wolfe for assistance.
