caterpillar that ate St. Augustine grass - Spodoptera frugiperda
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
August 16, 2010
This caterpillar has been eating patches of recently-fertilized St. Augustine grass. I don't normally post pest spp, but I thought that this might be useful. I suspect that it may be a fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, although that's just a guess.
