Red Car Property: Woolly Caterpillar Eating Non-Native, Invasive Jupiter's Beard

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 18, 2011.  Woolly Caterpillars seem to like the non-native, invasive Jupiter's Beard.  (Click on photo to enlarge.) 

Check out Bug Guide and What's That Bug? for more on Woolly Caterpillars.  There's a  variety of the genus Grammia, which turn into Tiger Moths. (Don't ask me which species, as there are many.)
