I have seen this species frequently feeding on dewberry blossoms this season. I assume it is a moth but I am not even certain about that, lol.


Moved from Moths.

I think it is...
a Mournful thyris moth but I am not an expert and could be wrong!

I think you are correct
so thanks a bunch. It is not even listed in David L. Wagner's ---
Caterpillars of Eastern North America but the posted images here definitely do resemble mine.
