Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I found this caterpillar on my steps in the sun - looked half dead. I put it in one of my plants in the shade with moist soil. I watered this morning and he wriggled around. I found him later out of the planter, so moved him to an overgrown area of the yard with a variety of green plants and shade. I don’t know what the host plant is, since I’m not sure what this is. Just a guess. I was able to get top and bottom side Pics.
