These larvae looked quite young, being only about 10mm long and brown, unlike our earlier sighting nearby in which the larvae were about 20mm long and green, but with the same pattern of black spines and white diagonal markings. The larger ones were attended by Camponotus ants, not Iridomyrmex.

any sign of the butterflies visiting the bush?

Nope. There were a lot of empty pupal cases and a few young larvae on this particular plant, so visits by the adults would probably be premature at this point, unless it was to lay more eggs.
