Observation date: September 20, 2008
Submitted by: RaisingButterfl...
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Immatures were located on Quercus turbinella. Females only oviposit on ultra-fresh new growth in the fall; which can be very difficult to find; which means when you DO find new growth, you will likely find immatures if the timing is right.
