Yellow-striped Army Worm

Spodoptera ornithogalli


About 35mm long


Vacant lot with mostly clovers and grasses.


I found this caterpillar under a piece of wood. The ground was bone dry under the wood, but I suspect it provided the caterpillar with enough shade to survive the hot, dry weather we've been having.
