Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I found this little worm next to one of our tiny milkweed plugs. We just planted May 1st, 2018. In April, I found a ton of armyworm chrysalises in the ground while tilling and prepping the ground. I disposed of all of them. This is the only armyworm I've found.
