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. Bob Martin
