The larva of this butterfly was first found in 1937 but attempts to rear specimens at that time were unsuccessful. From eggs and larvae obtained during the summer of 1946-47 it has been possible to complete the record of the different stages of this species. This paper descriptionbes the egg, larva and its instars as well as the imago.
