Life Stages of the Great Mormon Butterfly Caterpillar (Papilio memnon, Papilionidae)

(click on images for descriptions in captions)

In its first four instars, the Great Mormon caterpillars look like bird droppings as they rest on the leaves. The resemblance in the 3rd and 4th instars are stronger with the body also assuming a slimy appearance. As in the case of all Swallowtail butterflies, the Great Mormon caterpillars in all instars possess a fleshy organ called the osmeterium in the prothoracic segment. Usually hidden, the osmeterium can be everted to emit a foul-smelling secretion when the caterpillar is threatened.
The fifth and final instar caterpillar is dramatically different, bearing snake-eye like eyespots as a defensive strategy against potential predators.
