Anomalous Update 17 08 10

Brought both pots indoors on 14 08 10.Today 17 08 10 pot a the green larva, 1 male and 1 female emerged and non from pot b the brown larva as yet.but at least we can say that the 2 colour forms do not represent each sex ! obviously there must be some other reasons to explain why for example in a batch of eggs laid by the same female, some of the larva are green and some brown,and green larva can change to brown, when both are feeding on the exact same plant ! and its not a case of green when small changing to brown as they approach full size,as both colour forms reached fullsize before pupating.
