Post #1790032

I have set up a butterfly house, to put my G. Frits in. I have little jars, with water in them, to put passion vine cuttings, so that they had their food. That's working fantastic! Well, last weekend, I added a few lantana cuttings for necter, anticipating a hatching, and..this morning, on the lantana I found a totally different caterpiller. Not sure how I've been missing seeing him all these days, because I look at that butterfly house constantly. Anyways, I have tried to ID him and I can't find out what he is. So I need help. I feel bad to always be putting posts in here, it must seem as if I don't do any of my own research, but honest guys..I've tried LOL

Any help here would be appreciated, and if there are any sites that I can use that would help me, I'd appreciate it. I looked through BugGuide.Net, but couldn't find him
