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: Took photos of 6 caterpillars, all at varying stages/sizes on the same Common Rue plant that was in a planter with red cone flowers and another annual, that was located in a partially shaded area at the county extension office demonstration gardens. There were actually more on there; the rest being first instar stage. Sizes ranged from: almost 2" long to .25". Weather: 90 degrees, 54% humidity, mostly clear skies.
