Cross-striped Cabbageworm - Evergestis rimosalis

Cross-striped Cabbageworm - Evergestis rimosalis
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
October 16, 2011
Feeding on kale.

Is this what the black one
with pale lengthwise stripes turned into?

Same thoracic shield - same spot pattern.

Not sure
Apparently the kale leaves I put in for it to eat contained eggs I didn't see. So far I've had a couple of cabbage whites and one that looks something like this one, but the yellow stripe is gone and the back is a solid dull green with black dots. I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it.
