Hey all!

My male L.elaphus emerged from its pupa on July 5th, when can I dump the cup to check on the little Guy? He is upside down so I want to make sure he is okay.

He is upside down to dry a ventral side of abdomen (belly). No worry, as long as he is inside the pupal cell, and not out in plain ground. If he is inside the pupal cell, he will be able to grab a wall and lift himself up. Try not to touch for next couple days. L. elaphus is not known to die out of shock like some exotic species, though it is best to keep it alone for a week or two since they emerged out of pupa.
