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: Discovered that my new bing cheery tree had been defoliated overnight. Found a very large caterpillar at the base of the sapling. Identified it online as a Privet moth caterpillar. Very distinct coloration and size. I could not find any references stating that the Privet month is now found in North America. The garden/orchard site is 5 miles from the Canadian border.
