Cabbage Looper - Inchworm on Green Tomato

Believe this is a cabbage looper caterpillar on a green tomato. The inchworm type (also known as a measuring worm) caterpillar has a pale green body with white stripes.

This caterpillar can be pretty destructive to vegetable plant leaves and turns into a brown moth as an adult.

    Finally checked out the Spice House tongiht the veg. samosas, served with tamarind sauce and mint chutney, were very good nice flaky crust, not greasy at all (and both sauces were wonderful), chicken chettinadu v. flavorful if not particularly remarkable the people at the next booth, however, ordered the Hyderabadi biryani and were raving about it. They are in the process of expanding the restaurant into the space previously occupied by the grocery, so apparently business is good. (Altho' they need to do something about reducing the draft from the front door even way in the back I felt it every time the door opened on this cold night.)
