Saddleback Caterpillar Moth
Acharia stimulea

Observation date: September 22, 2022
Submitted by: gibneykm
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This guy was spotted on my Basil plant. I saw the dropping on some leaves but he's so well camouflage that it was hard to spot him. Night temps are starting to drop into the 50's so I hope that he goes into his cocoon soon.
