Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: There were several located on the underneath of each leaf. The leaves were about the size of my head on a tree. I believe it was a paper mulberry but I am not completely sure. It was cloudy but cool after a rain. The caterpillars were not noticed the previous day in the same spot. They did not appear to be feeding on any other surrounding plant life. Nothing appeared to be feeding on the caterpillars but a large colony of mealy bugs were nearby.
