Crotalaria and butterflies



Native to the NT and widespread throughout tropical countries, Crotalaria retusa has been cultivated by horticulturalists at the Territory Wildlife Park as it is extremely attractive to many species of butterflies and moths – some use it as a larval host plant whilst others harvest toxic alkaloids from the plant to protect themselves against predators. Clockwise from top: Blue Tiger, Swamp Tiger, Crotalaria Pod-borer moth adult and caterpillar, Common Crow and Lesser Wanderer. Original Watercolour and Coloured Pencil artwork recreated as a premium quality print. Open Edition. Price includes Express Post within Australia and New Zealand.
