Dear Bill & Cynthia,
Concerning message #13387: I agree that this is most likely the species described by Baba as Stiliger subviridis. The external morphology seems to be identical. I also agree with you that the sabot-shaped teeth described by Baba places this species in the genus Ercolania. It is good to know that it feeds on Boodlea. Have you by any chance seen egg masses? It would be really good to see what type of development it has.
Best wishes,
