Noctuid caterpillar on wood anemone - Cerastis tenebrifera

Noctuid caterpillar on wood anemone - Cerastis tenebrifera
Northampton, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
April 19, 2012
Size: 3 mm
On 4/18/12 I dug up a couple of Anemone quinquefolia plants to raise some leafminers, and the following evening I noticed that this caterpillar had eaten some holes in one of the leaves and was resting on the underside of a neighboring leaf.
This blog post includes some more explanation and a few additional photos.
