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: This group of caterpillars was on my columnar aspen tree. This was taken approx. at 9:00 pm. The weather was overcast but no rain, 18 Celsius. I was just curious about the species and also why they were all grouped together - like they were almost in a sleeping state.
