Large green and white caterpillar with curved red posterior "horn"
Found eating a tomato plant
Thanks for the correction!
Both eat tomato plants, which can make it very confusing.
This is the Tobacco Hornworm, Manduca sexta, which has seven diagonal lines. The similar looking Tomato Hornworm, Manduca quinquemaculata, has eight v-shaped stripes and a straight blue-black horn.
