Today I found a woolly bear caterpillar – one day it will metamorphose into an Isabella Tiger Moth … and it struck me that Lepidoptera larvae will soon be featuring in this site in some number. What to do – wait until there’s an adult to share the glory with or what?
Simple decision. For the purposes of the 1000 Species Project larvae and adults will count as two separate “species” towards the thousand and beyond target.
Just seems practical.
