Speckled green fruitworm

The speckled green fruitworm, Orthosia hibisci, can cause damage to buds, fruits, and leaves of many diverse broadleaved ornamental plants. Hosts include apple, pear, red stem osier, ninebark, and Ceanothus spp. In these images, the fruitworm is feeding on rose buds and leaves. This species overwinters as a moth and has one generation a year.
