Turbulent Phosphila
Phosphila turbulenta

Observation date: September 02, 2018
Submitted by: Benjamin Miller
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Spotted this uniquely marked caterpillar crawling on top of our "a/c condenser" outside the house. I just read that one plant P. turbulenta (if that's what it is) likes is greenbrier. Sure enough, a simple glance out my window right now reveals greenbrier on a tree right outside.
