Murraya koenigii – Curry Leaf

Other notes

Other Name Combinations: Bergera koenigii (WFO, 2023).

 

Notes: This plant is not a larval host of Spalgis epius – Apefly, but sometimes the life stages of the butterfly are found on the plant, because the Apefly larvae are carnivorous and feed on mealybugs that grow on the plant.
