Yuri, this genus is highly developed sexual dimorphism, males and females do not look at each other and females can be twice larger than males. In this species the female with pink lower wings, the males with yellow and darker front.

Alexander ! Something I have serious doubts that this pink neparnik? Here, as in the previous butterfly body yellow with black legs and yellow strokes. Maybe males and must then confirm.
But the point is, in general, not even in this. Alexander ! If not hard, it compares the two tracks and Both lifted before pupation.I would say that they are different sizes, and they are small.
In this species, which is a picture caterpillars are the 3rd option. Different both in appearance and large size.
The length of the tracks is not less than 7 cm, bigger than a matchbox.
In this individual, I did not fully deploy the house was limited to shooting other tracks. Specimens. Therefore we have to throw apart.
