I enjoy these butterflies in my garden. They love lantana as nectar plants. I would rate them as a positive because I enjoy them. However, many farmers rate these butterflies as a negative. Their larvae spend their lives munching on legume leaves. Their larvae is known as the bean leaf rollers.

Found cats on my lima bean leaves, could only find two. Captured the smallest one and reared it on bean leaves. FYI, it ate very little of about 3 leaves. It took 42 days from an inch long baby cat to eclosed adult. See my photos of cats (out of focus) and of the chrysalis and adult in bug files photos.
