Cannabis chomper - Chloridea virescens

Cannabis chomper - Chloridea virescens
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA

Size: aprox. 1 inch or less
This caterpillar was feeding on cannabis. I'm leaning towards Tobacco Budworm (Chloridea virescens) but there is such variety in those caterpillars that this is just a guess.

Moved from Heliothinae.
