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 first saw these around May 7th. We saved two of them and fed them until they went into cocoons (May 22nd). The second one, shown in these two photos, hatched from its cocoon today, and we turned it loose.

Observation notes: The host plant was some clover. We caught it as a caterpillar on May7th. We fed it until May 22nd when it went into a cocoon, and on June 19th, it hatched into this moth, which we promptly turned loose. This is the second of three caterpillars.
