Lost Larvae

As I match larvae and moths / butterflies, I have photographs of seven species for which I cannot find photographs of the larvae on the Internet. Perhaps one of you knows where a photo exists and could leave a comment and let me know. Thank you!

Name My Photo

  1. Is this a modest sphinx moth larva?

    Bristly Cutworm:

  2. They are! Thank you so much, Pete. (I can't e-mail you so I hope you see this.) I don't know why I never saw the modest sphinx larva before. I know I looked at least twice at bugguide for it. And I never googled bristly cutworm because I had googled a couple of other lost larva and never found a thing. I gave up too early.

    Thank you for your work!


Thank you for visiting and for your comments!
