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!
Observation notes: It has been eating the leaves of Ilex crenata (cultivar "Beehive") for two days of moderate temps in 70's. I did not see it today after a rainy, cooler night. I grow a great variety of plants and have never noticed any caterpillars eating ilex before, but this variety has
smaller, more tender leaves.
