Dogbane Saucrobotys Caterpillar - Saucrobotys futilalis

Dogbane Saucrobotys Caterpillar - Saucrobotys futilalis
Ozark Mountains, Searcy County, Arkansas, USA
July 18, 2010
I've been intending to get back to a clump of dogbane I'd noticed so I could take some photos. I finally got around to it. What I found was mostly bare stems, lots of deteriorating caterpillar webbing and a couple of late developing caterpillars. I photographed the cats. I'll say this: These cats can totally devastate a small cluster of dogbane.
