Studies in Pacific Coast Lepidoptera
On a recent collecting trip over the Mojave Desert, my wife and I were fortunate enough to observe! the larvae of Melitaea neumoegeni, skin feeding on Aster tortifolius. Several specimens were secured, and two examples reared to maturity, the remainder being parasitized. The following notes were made of the larva and pupae.
