cutworms, loopers, owlet moths, and underwings

Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type) L.)
Descriptor: Larva(e)
Description: Cutworms [various species including black cutworm, Agrotis ipsilon (Hufnagel); granulate, Feltia subterranean (Fabricius); and variegated Peridroma saucia (Hubner)]: In plant beds, cutworms may feed on stems at the soil surface, cut off buds, or eat holes in leaves. In recently transplanted fields, plants may be cut off just above ground level and individual leaves or buds may be cut off. A few species eat holes in the leaves. If cutworms are suspected as a cause of damage, dig around damaged plants (cutworms usually hide beneath soil, detached leaves or debris during the day). Cutworms are generally soft-bodied, dirty gray to brown to black, variously marked with dark spots or lines and usually 1-2 inches long. They curl up when disturbed.
