Butterflies and Moths of Southern Vancouver Island--Jeremy B. Tatum



Orthosia hibisci


This species is abundant in the area. The caterpillars ("Speckled Green Fruitworm") feed mostly on Rosaceae, such as Holodiscus, Oemleria, Rosa, Crataegus, Prunus, Pyrus and even Geum, though I have even found it, exceptionally, on Gaultheria, Arbutus, Quercus and Plantago.
