Group of Saucrobotys futilalis larvae feeding on Clasping Dogbane (Apocynum sibiricum).
An old field with clasping dogbane (Apocynum sibiricum) one of the larval hosts for this moth species.
The caterpillars feed in groups eating the surface of the leaves. I noticed that they also close leaves together with silk to make a shelter.
