During the summers of 2004 and 2005 host plant associations of larvae of Lepidoptera were studied on Plummers Island, Maryland, with an emphasis on the family Limacodidae (slug caterpillars). A total of 37 species from 12 families was recorded, representing 79 caterpillar-host plant combinations. Eleven species of Limacodidae were collected and reared from six target host plants—box elder (Acer negundo L.), sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marshall), pawpaw [Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal], pignut hickory [Carya glabra (Mill.) Sweet], spicebush [Lindera benzoin (L.) Blume], and red oak (Quercus rubra L.).
