Summary

Watercolour illustration of the caterpillar and pupa of the Red-spotted Jezebel Butterfly, Delias aganippe [originally as Pieris (Thyca) aganippe], by Arthur Bartholomew, 1861. This work, finally published as Plate 10 in The Prodromus of the Zoology of Victoria by Frederick McCoy, also includes an illustration of the host plant, the Native Mistletoe.

This print forms part of the much larger Prodromus Collection. Many of the original illustrations in the collection informed the production of the two volume work 'The Prodromus of the Zoology of Victoria', the first major publication of the National Museum of Victoria.
