parasitized caterpillar - Dolba hyloeus

parasitized caterpillar - Dolba hyloeus

I've added a photo of the host plant as well if it'll help with ID of the caterpillar or parasitoids. Found in a bog.

parasitized caterpillar - Dolba hyloeus parasitized caterpillar - Cotesia congregata

Moved- Not Manduca sexta
Moved from Carolina Sphinx.

This appears to be an early instar Dolba hyloeus due to the hostplant (Ilex species?) and the six prominent diagonal lateral strips (as oppose to seven in other similar NH species).

 
thanks!
I was a bit iffy about it, since it wasn't quite the color of M. sexta but I couldn't find any info about other species that wasp parasitized. Thank you for the ID!

Moved
Moved from Cotesia congregata.

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

 
ID
If it's alright, I'm going to move one photo to the Manduca sexta page, so I can add a data point for New Hampshire.

 
Sure
I don't know the ID of the host. Yes, do move one photo.
