    While we don't have Jewel Caterpillars—what Snom was based on—in my part of the world, this one sure looks icy!

    Also, I was starting to think that sphinx caterpillars were going to evade me all year, but I finally found one!

    Still hoping to find a Dunsparce Tersa Sphinx caterpillar!

  5. I doubt I'll be getting much more this year, but here's a newbie from a couple nights ago: Pavlovski's Monopis Moth

    A member of the clothes moth family introduced from Asia. Its caterpillars feed on fur and feathers.

  6. What the what!?

    I found this last April but, assuming it was another one of those little azure butterflies I'm never able to catch with open wings, never bothered uploading it. I'm just now realizing that it's a moth—a Bluish Spring Moth!
