Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. 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: Where: Found on my backyard concrete patio in Spokane, Wa.
Weather: Sunny. Light breeze. Temperature was in the upper 50s degrees Fahrenheit.
Caterpillar Details: About 2” long at this time. Completely smooth. No hair or horns or other identifiable features. Bright green with one white stripe down the “spine.” Down the sides, I couldn’t tell if they were black stripes or black spots (See picture.)
Behavior: alert and didn’t seem interested in leaves. So we put it on the ground near some bushes which was a honeysuckle bush. Seemed uninterested in our blackberry bush too.
