Observation notes: This sighting coinsides with the other sighting I posted for this date. I found 4 caterpillars, all within a 2 day-period on the same plant. I reared 3 of the caterpillars to adulthood and this is the resulting moth that hatched from one of the pupae. Caterpillars found on Bigtooth Aspen.
