Emeralds, Geometer Moths

This Pomasia species is dependent on the death of a leaf, specifically in the method combined with disease history. Green chlorophyll, carbohydrates, water, and salts breakdown often revealing more stable pigments called carotenoids and anthocyanins which range from yellow to red (think autumn leaves). In this case red is revealed and the disease history caused by ‘patch feeding’ by a tiny insect followed by the invasion of a sooty mold
