Observations and comments

After collecting a few of these off of a Clusia vine low to the ground Gentry observed a band of Coatis passing by the next day and hunting through the bush picking things off of it to eat. After the Coatis left there were no more Iscadia on the plant. 5th instar larvae leave the plant to pupate in the soil.
