Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I found a cocoon on my balcony catnip plant, thinly wrapped in silk with a green caterpillar partially transformed into a chrysalis. I moved the leaf into my indoor greenhouse and this morning found it hatched with a moth resting on my fennel sprouts. The moth so far hasn't moved and I transferred the pot it was resting on to the balcony in full sun for it to dry out the rest of the way.
