Observation notes: This is a regular species in my yard on my wild grape. However, never on the grape that grows onto the front porch where the moth lights are kept. It always seems to pick grape that is growing onto trees/shrubs/thickets which is located in the driveway and wooded hillside. This mature larva was found by flashlight feeding on grape.
