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: At least three of these caterpillars on an island snapdragon (Gambelia speciosa) shrub. This shrub normally occurs on Catalina Island, but it was planted at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center located in Cardiff by the Sea, California. Surrounding vegetation was coastal sage scrub, and salt marsh habitat was close by. Weather was in the 60s F.
