Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: It is fall in the northwest. I found this caterpillar on the sidewalk of my child's school. It reminded me of swallowtail caterpillars. When I picked it up it froze and stayed curled in my hand for many minutes before starting to move about again.
