The species profiles provide information on each of the Giant Silk Moth species recorded in Vermont, including information on locating and identifying cocoons. Most cocoons can be found still attached to branches and twigs of trees and bushes, so this is a great place to start your search. Others can be found in leaves still attached to the plant or in the leaf litter on the ground.
