Today, I learned the differences between the tomato horn worm and the tobacco horn worm. I have tobacco horn worms. Always learning on this forum!

Both tobacco and tomato hornworms eat, tomatoes?

Yep. And supposedly, the further south you go , the more tobacco and vice a versa. Although I really can't find any difference in them other than the name and a few small cosmetic differences.

This plump baby looks a bit like a hornworm, but hasn't got a horn, and isn't closely related. It will become a moth called "Hitched Arches," a brownish moth with white markings. I've seen a caterpillar like this twice before on weeds. I was surprised to see it on a carrot stem in front of my ground cherries, but it sounds like they aren't too particular about what they eat. It's not a classic garden pest, so if I find it again, I'll move it elsewhere in my yard to some weeds I know it can eat.
