Hi Dave,

The sulphur butterfly is the Cloudless Sulphur, 
Phoebus(Phoebis?-check spelling) sennae.  None of the three 
caterpillars shown as thumbnails become that butterfly.  The first 
cat. on the left is for a different butterfly, the Buckeye, Junonia 
coenia.  The other two are some kind of arctiid moths.

Cheers,  Rich
