Baileya ophthalmica – Eyed Baileya

Family Nolidae   Hodges # 8970

Caterpillar foods:  beech, hornbeam (Carpinus), hophornbeam (Ostrya virginiana)  (Bugguide), and butternut (Beadle & Leckie)

We don’t have any of these plants on our property, as far as I know, although hornbeam, hophornbeam and butternut can all be found in western Wisconsin.  Maybe we have some that I don’t know about, or maybe the caterpillars can also eat walnut or other species.
