Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. 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: This caterpillar found on the ground in hayfield when we were picking up hay bales. Smooth black skin, no hairs, small red dots regularly spaced along sides. A "horn" at one end, and red on the ends (mouth parts). Not interested in grass or leaves placed inside the jar. Just crawled round and round. Hot sunny day - approx. 80 degrees in sun.
