Then there are the Leps which have no wings in adults and those with
meat-eating larvae. If they were all like this there would be very few
"watchers" wouldn't  there. There would still be collectors, however. What
a difference color makes? I'd say how esthetically prejudiced we people
are. Oh, we would have to make all the leps larvae look like Megathymus
ones too - better yet like those of the Calpodes ethlius, disgusting.
