Description

Two fairly newly emerged adults of a Zanna sp. The first photo shows a normal adult. The second is odd because its cephalic process is more like that of the nymphs than that of the adults. Even the eye seems more like that of the nymphs. It is not sexual dimorphism because I have previously collected males and females at the same site, all with normal cephalic processes. In case anyone is wondering, I know they have newly emerged because they are still on the food plant of the nymphs. Two or three days after emerging, the adults always leave that site. I have yet to find out where they go or what they feed on as adults.
