Is this an angle shade and will it eat everything?

Asked May 28, 2019, 8:30 PM EDT

I think I’ve IDed this as an Angle Shade caterpillar but I am not sure how big a threat it is to my plants. I’ve only seen the one so far but they are green so I might not be seeing them. Should I be doing something or let them be for the birds? Thanks!!

We cannot find an Angle Shade caterpillar in our resources. There are not enough identifying characteristics to accurately identify the larvae.

We recommend that you let it be for the birds.
