Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Began weeding my front yard and discovered dozens of caterpillars specifically on the scarlet spiderling (Boerhavia coccinea) in my yard. Just after a good rain.

Coordinator notes: Very interesting sighting. The lateral eyespots and the stubby horn - as well as the location of these sightings (within the US, P. terlooii is only found in AZ) - are conclusive.
