Nice find! Since you know the identity of your caterpillar, please add the scientific name in the appropriate field so your spotting can be complete. Without the scientific name, the Project Noah database considers your spotting as unidentified.

I noticed that you have a couple of other spottings that are similar to this (missing the scientific name). If you could update those as well, it would be great! Thanks!
