Kamehameha caterpillar shelters

Kamehameha caterpillars (Vanessa tameamea) are shelter builders, chewing crescents into nettle leaves and folding the flaps over themselves for protection. This telltale sign was detected at all release sites, but caterpillars did not survive long enough to establish self-sustaining populations. (Photo by Will Haines, Ph.D.)
