Chrysomelid larvae

Recommended Posts

Chrysomelids are almost never kept. I've only seen larvae of a few different species a few times in my life. These are from the biggest species in my area (1/2"). This is a '"common" species but I'm not certain I've ever seen the larvae before except in photos. Last time I found some chrysomelid larvae was about ten years ago. They were on a small cottonwood or aspen tree and I went back to grab some the next day, but something had eaten them.

These are kept more like lepidoptera larvae. I've found adults in the past but did not get them to lay eggs on the host.
