Pupa is named from its resemblance to a chrysalis, the apex being rounded.
The lowly caterpillar weaves its chrysalis around itself and is seen or heard from no more.
When the charred chrysalis cracked into pieces Mothra emerged.
After a period, they go inside a chrysalis and come out as a fully grown butterfly.
At its first metamorphosis it produces a caterpillar, then a bombylius and lastly a chrysalis - all these changes taking place within six months.
