Photo 18 Aug 17 notes Cinnabar Moth Caterpillar on Ragwort
The Cinnabar moth has been introduced to many parts of the world to control Ragwort. The Caterpillars consume it so voraciously that the food supply is often exhausted and many die of starvation before pupating. They can become cannibalistic when food is scarce.
