Observation notes: There were actually two of them stuck together at their ends. They were found on a peach tree. Almost ran into them while cutting the yard. One was bigger than the other. Weather was warm and humid that day...had rained the day before.

Coordinator notes: This is a male and female in copula (mating).The female (open wings with smaller antennae) is probably the larger of the two. Peach is one known foodplant of the caterpillar of this species. I think I see a cocoon on the tree at the fingertips in the photo. If so, the female emerged and attracted the male to the site the night before. SAT
