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: Catalpa tree about 4 meters tall absolutely doused in caterpillars, the majority of which are 5th instars. Some smaller caterpillars had braconid wasp cocoons. Hordes of tachinid flies swarm the tree with great enthusiasm.
