Xylophanes tersa tersa and My Pentas

This interesting creature has almost destroyed my Pentas. Here's a link to more info. Apparently their main diet consists of Pentas (star flowers).

Jenny Dog thinks they're very interesting, and wants to bring them in and play with them. My Pentas are in pots, so I've had to move them off the ground so that she'll leave them alone.

What struck me as I searched around to identify this guy are that there are so many distinct varieties of moths and their catepillars, but that each are beautiful. Posted by Picasa
