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: I found this Turbulent Phosphila caterpillar, just an inch or so long, dining on the underside of a green briar vine leaf. I am just north of Ames, Iowa, out in the country, on a hill, in an area of mixed woods, prairie and cropland, not too far East of I-35 and between Skunk River and Bear Creek.
