Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Date notes: My daughter and I saved the caterpillars and waited for them to hatch from their cocoons. We had them in caterpillar state on May 7th. It went into it's cocoon on May 22nd. This one hatched out June 13th.

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: We found the caterpillar with a bunch of others in some clover that was growing around our house. We brought it in, kept it fed, and waited until it turned into a butterfly. These two photos are the same insect. We collected three caterpillars, two of this variety.

Coordinator notes: I think this moth is Grammia incorrupta, not the Mexican Tiger Moth (Notarctia proxima). The hindwing and head markings are consistent with G. incorrupta.
