Found as a mature caterpillars and as cocoons in North Point in April, 1998. They were feeding on Ficus microcarpa leaves. They also feed on Ficus benjamina.
The larva was about 40 mm / 1.6 inches long.
The oddly patterned pupa was attached by
only a few silk threads to the upper leaf surface.
In rest position the male resembles a cicada.
