Spoladea recurvalis - Beet Webworm Moth
Also known as the Hawaiian Beet Webworm or the Spinach Moth, this wide-ranging species occurs throughout the warmer parts of the U.S. and neotropics as well as Australia, Asia, and Africa. They migrate northward in late summer as the southern populations build. Compare with the similar Spotted Beet Webworm Moth (Hymenia perspectalis). The caterpillars feed on various plants in the Amaranthaceae (amaranth family), including amaranths, beets, lamb's-quarters (Chenopodium), and spinach.
