Late March

We're really getting spring started now! Still seeing tons of tent caterpillars (genus Malacosoma) being reported all over the US.

The very southern US is starting to report all kinds of underwing caterpillars (genus Catocala), especially in Texas, as well as some other Erebinae.
The Gulf coast region is still reporting tons of fir tussock caterpillars (Orgyia detrita), but I think the first white marked tussock (Orgyia leucostigma) has been reported in Texas today.
The checkerspots (Melitaeini) and three Orgyia tussock species are going strong on the West Coast.
The tiger moth caterpillars are still going strong on the East Coast and the Great Lakes areas, especially the Virginian ctenucha (Ctenucha virginica) caterpillar.

The most exciting news for this week is the first report of fall webworms (Hyphantria cunea) in Texas. I'm sure everyone is excited for those!
