Around 250 eggs are laid separately. 2 - 3 weeks later the solitary caterpillars hatch. During the day they stay on the underside of the leaves. The larval stage lasts 6 weeks and then the caterpillars pupate. The pupae are striking; the middle is constrictedly built and has a hump with shiny, metallic patches on the front and back. .
