Great Nawab Butterfly “Dragonhead” Caterpillar (Polyura eudamippus, Charaxinae, Nymphalidae)

The larvae of the butterflies of the Nymphalid subfamily Charaxinae are blessed with impressive head ornamentation appropriately earning them the title of dragonhead caterpillars.


They are also quite fearless, constructing a mattress of silk-woven leaves to sit out the daylight hours, often fully exposed to the elements and potential hazards.

Man-faced Shield Bug (Catacanthus incarnatus, Pentatomidae)

These large true bugs occur in four bright colour morphs: red, orange, yellow and cream with dark eye spots on their and/or forewings, advertising their noxious taste and also perhaps functioning as eyespots to mislead predators. Overall, the spotted pattern resembles a man’s face when one views the bug oriented with the head downwards (I can see you tilting your head).
