Recently I got in a lot this pupa on stick, about which I knew before, and surprisingly there was a fitting caterpillar, too.
Now I was wondering if there might be also a butterfly. And I am wondering if there are more species.

This set is marked:

Mourning Cloak caterpillar 2
Mourning Cloak chrysalis 2

No year unfortunately. Both have this 2, so these are numbered as set, not as single items.
And hasn't there to be a set "1" at least?

I know about different coloured pupas:

always thought they were just color versions, but obviously they are different species?

Hi froggie, very interesting but I am not familiar with these either. The only mourning cloak I am familiar with is the adult by Toy Major.

I really tried to search for it online as well as I checked Wild Republic catalogue and I haven't found anything. Just a little reference to a mourning cloak lifecycle set, made by BugFolk at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] scratch You are always finding illusive things and when there is an arthropod missing on Blaine's collection, it tells a lot about how rare it may be. Very Happy

The mourning cloak life cycle (which I think is actually a Morpho) mentioned on ATF is by AAA.

I was able to hunt another set down, marked with "4" - the monarch butterfly set: caterpillar, chrysalis and imago. Now I know for sure that there is an adult butterfly in the set. Makes me even more longing for that mourning cloak figure!

Interestingly the butterfly is marked on the belly with 2, while the wings are marked with "4" and the species name. And it looks as if the wings are not one part with the body but glued together with it.
