Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I first observed a couple caterpillars crawling on bare ground. Then I discovered a collection of several of the same type crawling all over the trash barrel in our local park. We were there for a boyscouts community service activity, picking up trash. I did not observe any eating or on any plant life in the area.
