caterpillar and resulting moth that uses milkweed as a host - Estigmene acrea
Fairborn, Clark County, Ohio, USA July 6, 2012 Size: 1 inch body length?
this is the resulting moth of the 2nd caterpillar, the photo is a little hazy because there was some plastic wrap covering the cup
initially I thought this might be (Ethmia prattiella) aside from its larger size, but now that I have the photos on the computer screen they don't match
