We got very interesting questions on the egg laying behaviour of butterflies…

@⁨Sandra⁩ shared an interesting story of her study that she has got caterpillar of Red-pierrot Butterfly on Kalanchoe plant leaf…

Discussion went on we could analyse that how do butterfly identify their host plants and how many host plants butterfly can have…

Meaning if Red-pierrot Butterfly is dependent on single species of Kalanchoe plant which is not a common plant so how do these Butterflies will survive if there’s no alternative…

@⁨Sandra⁩ can we make an Hypothesis and modify our set up in such a way that we would able to understand the butterfly and plant host specificity?..

These are the different types of Kalanchoe plant species mentioned on Whiteboard during chatshaala from a reference.

Question remains the same:
Do butterflies lay eggs on different species of the same genus plant?..
Does one butterfly can choose different species as well?.

Single plant can also be the host plant for two different species of Butterflies?.

Like common mormon and lime Butterfly lay eggs on lemon plant…

We should know that who are the other people who working on same model system likewise @⁨Sandra⁩ attempted to shate one of her collaborators work
that’s @⁨Vishnupriya⁩ work.

@⁨Vishnupriya⁩ is working on butterflies and currently she has 5 different Butterflies.

@⁨Vishnupriya⁩ please give us the story’of your work and your plan of work…
