Observation Notes: I found this guy eating the leaves of my Hibiscus plant next to a headstone at a cemetery in Crescent City Florida, so I captured him, placed him in a insect observation tank and now he's cocooning himself under a leaf. I fed him the same leaves from the plant I found him on, then the past couple days he quit feeding and found him cocooning himself yesterday under a leaf. I don't know if this is a butterfly or a moth. I've searched online but cannot find anything similiar to this catapillar. Thanks if you can ID this guy or gal.
