Paectes abrostoloides
Moccasin Lake, Winston, Douglas County, Georgia, USA
August 3, 2006
Size: about 25 mm
Grandkids spotted this one on plant leaf. Any idea what the ID may be?

possibly a Nadata gibbosa

Thanks again
Thanks again John and Jane, it seems you've identified yet another of my images. I appreciate it very much. Now I can tell my grandkids the kind of catapiller they found.
