Flapdoodle Minot, ND There are several species in the family Noctuidae with a roughly similar appearance; best guess is the American brindle (Lithomoia germana), but I cannot find a good image online for comparison.
CPBob Cedar Park, TX Found this caterpillar in my Alamo Vine. It's about 6 in. in length. Appears to be preparing to turn into something else as it was hardly moving when I cut the section of vine it occuppied to take this picture. Any idea what it is or what it will be?
