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!
Date notes: I found this moth as a caterpillar a few weeks ago. Around 3 maybe, to be exact.
Submitted by: Lumidae
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I reared them into an adult from when they were a caterpillar. However, I found them when they were ready to pupate, so they refused any food in favor of burying themselves to make a cocoon. I switch between two houses, and the cocoon stayed at my mom's house, and by the time I came back again to my mom's house they were already hatched, so I cannot give an acurrate day they hatched, but around Oct 30. The location on the map is where the moth emerged, but where I found the caterpillar was at my dad's house, which was not far from here. I don't know the exact coordinates, I'm sorry.
