Yes, when I went back the next day, I realized that the Common Birdwing pupa was dead. Just look at the decapitated carcass left on the Aristolochia acuminata.

In addition, the Common Rose pupa was nowhere to be seen.

What was obvious was that some pruning was done and some of the branches were removed. In the process, the unsuspecting worker might have ripped the Common Birdwing pupa into two and remove the Common Rose pupa without their knowledge.

Sigh, it was a sad day.
