Clepsis peritana – Garden Tortrix

Hodges # 3688

Caterpillar foods:  strawberries and other low plants – preferring dying leaves  (Bugguide)

Very similar to Clepsis virescana, and probably can only be told apart by dissection.  C. peritana is much more common, so I think it’s more likely to be that species.
