A Mexican jumping bean moth, Cydia deshaisiana, on the seed of the desert shrub, Sebastiania pavoniana, at the University of Florida at Gainesville.

The moth lays an egg inside the seed. The caterpillar then eats the inside of the seed, reacting to heat and light, moving or ‘jumping’ the seed to get out of the sun in the desert. The caterpillar eventually hatches out to complete the life cycle.
