Saddled Prominent
Heterocampa guttivitta

Observation date: August 18, 2011
Submitted by: Rydden213
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was a sunny day. We had found it on our Ford Explorer. Just a few days earlier we spotted our first Tomato Hornworm. We were able to identify it using this sight. Now this one I've tried matching the pictures to it but no luck. It's very slow moving, and it's back set of legs are very sticky.
