"SYMBIOTIC PARTNERSHIP between this caterpillar and ants is beneficial to both species. A variety of adaptations, including attractive songs or acoustic signals, enable the caterpillar to exploit the territoriality and the food-gathering instincts of the ants. This caterpillar is sipping sweet fluid from an extrafloral nectary on a plant while ants tend it."
