Thank you, Sue. Smiling

Interesting critter. Didn't find any clear information, but it looks as if it is relatively benign?

According to this Bugguide page:
http://bugguide.net/node/view/...
"Adults take nectar of flowers in old-field habitats. Larvae feed on leaves of Ailanthus and paradise trees and other deciduous trees and shrubs."

There's a bit more info here:
http://www.gbif.org/species/18...
says "Atteva aurea can be a minor pest in nurseries, although it rarely does serious damage."

Beautiful! I was able to photograph one of those last year. The tree the webworm feeds on, the Ailanthus, is considered a pest around here though.
