Cutworm, we believe

Cutworm, we believe

Dear virusmanbob,
We believe this is a Cutworm or some other species of larval Owlet Moth from the family Noctuidae, which is a large and diverse family which is well represented on BugGuide.  We will attempt to provide more specific information, but that is the best generality we can offer at this moment.

Dear Daniel –
Thanks so much for your rapid reply and for the useful links!
All the best, Bob
