|L. junceum and close-up of the same 5th instar of minori||L. graveolens (King's Desert-parsley) (pink)|
The photo above shows a field of graveolens growing
in the tops of the Wasatch Range, UT at over 9,000 feet. It is a high elevation
species (7000 to near 11,000 feet). This species also appears to be a good LFP
for rearing purposes. First through 5th instars from any Indra
population will readily switch to it. L.
graveolens is listed as L.
