Called a Cattail Caterpillar as a larvae, and Henry's marsh moth as an adult. Curiously, this individual was found stuck to a fluff of white threads with maggots/white larvae inside. Was this parasitization in action? Its own cocoon? Something it had just happened upon and gotten stuck? Anybody know?
