Need a caterpillar id please - Spodoptera
Garland, Dallas County, Texas, USA
August 26, 2015
Found this on the underside of my milkweed leaf in late August. Was look for monarch caterpillars but this was something different. It was eating the leaf. Tiny, maybe 2nd instar. Did the best I could to crop it and give as much detail as possible, will add a second view. No sign of a horn on the end.
