I've found quite a few of these on my turnip greens. I am attempting to raise one. Am finding that turnip leaves wilt while standing in a glass of water. I have been seeing a lot of cabbage butterflies laying eggs, and have found one or two older cabbage butterfly larvae on my turnip greens, but I think that this is something different.

Turnip green caterpillar
I found this caterpillar on turnip greens this afternoon, which has already been identified as Evergestis rimosalis. Do you think this might be what yours is also?
