Eggs are laid singly on undersides of older leaves; eggs are barrel-shaped. The larvae occur primarily
on the underside of leaves and are easily recognized by their habit of arching their backs. They feed
mostly on mature foliage. The pupa is enclosed in a thin silk cocoon spun on the underside of mature
leaves, in the crown of the plant, or in debris on the ground.
