status

 

Pelopidas mathias (Fabricius, 1798) 

TCEC reared Pelopidas mathias  from Panicum maximum  (referred to as Megathyrsus maximus in Cock & Congdon (2012))  ( Poaceae  ) at Ranomafana, Madagascar, in March 2013. The caterpillar and pupa are within the range of individual variation already reported from this and other grass food plants in mainland Africa ( Cock & Congdon 2012) and so are not documented further here.
