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: I checked the same New Jersey Tea shrub where I'd found a similar caterpillar earlier. This time I managed to get 2 images of the same individual (dorsal & side views) which may help with identification.

Coordinator notes: Given the food plant documented in this sighting, New Jersey Tea (Ceanothus americana), I now think this is unlikely to be Callophrys augustinus. BugGuide has useful info that indicates this is much more likely to be C. serotina - see https://bugguide.net/node/view/45798 Thanks to the reviewers who caught this.
