1994 The Woodlands, Burleydam SJ617429 Larval 1 digital photo held by shane farrell - BJ comments as follows - I don't actually remember two sitings, but that may be my memory at fault. I know that when the picture was taken, we had a Figwort growing near the house and the larva was spotted there. This year, I noticed a couple of Figworts down in the wood, and made a mental note to look for them next year. I think the photo does demonstrate that we had one at one time.
