SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday November 8 2017 33 Backyard Critters SCHOOLS The life of a monarch Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us THE LARGEST and arguably the most well-known butterfly in New Zealand is the monarch (sanaus plexippus). The monarch arrived in New Zealand around 1873, having migrated across the Pacific from North America via islands along the way. The longest insect migration record of 3432km is held by a female which flew from Canada to Mexico, travelling 120km per day. It is the only butterfly in the world known to undertake a return migration, even though it may take several generations to do so. However, in New Zealand, monarchs don’t migrate or travel so far, but like their overseas relatives, they hibernate over winter in large groups. In Christchurch, monarchs overwinter in tall trees at several sites including Abberley Park, Centennial Park, St James Park, the Pioneer Recreation and Sports Centre playground, Linwood Cemetery, Redwood Park, Woodham Park and Bishopdale Park. Overwintering is triggered when air temperature drops below 13 deg C for two days. In spring, eggs are laid on milkweeds, including the swan plant, and take four to 10 days to hatch. Larva take between nine and 20 days to pupation and adults emerge from pupae 10 to 28 days later. Male monarchs have a black spot (scent gland) on each of their hind wings and have thinner veins than females. GROW: The monarch butterfly goes through a life cycle of four different stages. First there is the egg, then the larvae or caterpillar (left), the pupa or chrysalis (above), and finally the adult butterfly.
