I have not seen the adult moth, but I have had several of the larva feasting on my snapdragons. They almost striped them before I noticed them. Today, they were on my coneflowers with lots of good sized holes on the leaves. The larva is about 1 1/4" long. It is black, "hairy" and has an orange stripe on its sides.
I took a picture, but my camera would not get a close up.
