Description

Symptoms

These caterpillars can cause damage to a wide range of plants at all times of the year, but are most commonly seen from late spring to mid autumn. Damage includes holes in the foliage and flowers, young soft growth at the shoot tips is particularly favoured. The caterpillars hide during the day and emerge to feed at night.
