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: Was eating fireweed flowers and fruits between the my house and the alley at my garden in Lendrum. The caterpillar spent about 10-15min doing nothing between foraging sessions. The weather has been record breaking heat. It also finally rained about 1hr afterwards.
There is also a more immature caterpillar nearby.
