Moved

Not enough of the 10,000 possible moth caterpillars
are imaged, but from those that are, we would have picked Peridroma saucia. How does that match with what you were thinking?

 
I'm not even going to say
what I was thinking. But now I'm thinking you are correct, thank you, and you made me laugh.

I will never have an eye or a memory for these things.
Maybe there will be ONE adult come out of the batch.
