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: I'd say the caterpillar was at least 3 inches long. It was just moving along in the grass (close to a dandelion)--eventually squirmed under foliage beneath shrubbery. It was a gorgeous sunny low-humidity day in Des Moines, Iowa.
