Gulf Fritillary larvae on Passion Vine
Agraulis vanillae incarnata on Passiflora spp.

Photo of Gulf FritillaryI have fun rearing this species. They are so easy. I haven't been able to induce the adults to mate or oviposit in captivity, so I just harvest the 'pillars from passion vines growing in the neighborhood. What amazes me is that the last brood of the year here in Southern California runs into November. When I keep the pupae indoors they emerge in December!
