Identify a Butterfly, Moth, or Caterpillar
With a Photograph
Do you have a photograph of a caterpillar? If so, please provide us with host plant information, or even consider raising it to the adult stage before submitting photographs. Surprisingly, most of the larval stages of butterflies and moths are simply unknown, and caterpillar photographs are very difficult to identify.
Without a Photograph
If you do NOT have a photograph or you do not want to create an account and submit your sighting, start by browsing image thumbnails in the Image Gallery. Use the filters to narrow your search.
Cannot find your species using the Image Gallery? Try the Identification Tools, where you will find additional identification resources, including web and text resources for butterflies, moths, and caterpillars.
