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: The caterpillar was photographed on Gaylussacia tomentosa. Nearby plants include Vaccinium formosa, V. myrsinites, V. arboreum, Lyon ferruginea, Gordonia lasianthus, Salix caroliniana and Quercus geminata. The weather was fine with wind at 12 mph from the west, 76 degrees F, and full sun.
