Until it is almost full grown, the caterpillar of Aseptis binotata
looks very similar to that of the common Orthosia hibisci,
although it has a much wider taste in foodplants, hibisci usually being
found on Rosaceae. When full grown, however, the red line along the side identifies
it as binotata. It is quite unlike that of the next species A.
adnixa. I have found the caterpillar of binotata on Snowberry,
Ocean Spray, Arbutus, Indian Plum, elder and honeysuckle.
