Darling Underwing
Catocala cara

Observation date: July 02, 2009
Submitted by: L Reid
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The caterpillar was well camouflaged on a willow. I only saw it because I grabbed the willow as I was walking through the brush and felt something soft rather than a hard tree trunk. It was about 6" long.
