    Interesting that they've asked you to raise it. Do you have some sacrificial Sarracenia flowers spare?

    Often easier to ID as adult. Vs counting hairs on the larva's butt. But concur with tentative ID.

    Pupae don't eat (other than the stores in their body). The larva appears to be pupating also, and yes I do have many flowers I can feed it.

    He did say "it certainly looks like it could be LBAM" but"there are several other leaf-roller (Tortricidae) that they could be"

    More munching... though perhaps not by insects. One of the pitchers was bend in half but snapped back when I straightened it out. Birds perhaps or squirrels? Going after the insects in the traps? People around here feed peanuts to the jays which in turn bury them in my pots. They've dug up a few Sarracenia jonesii seedlings (dried out and dead), a S. minor and my newest VFT acquisition.
