Help Identifying Turnip/Oriental Greens Leaf Pest
I have an outbreak of small caterpillars on my oriental greens and turnips. They're somewhat transparent and have brownish heads, and look nothing like the typical cole crop caterpillar pest that I normally deal with in spring and summer (loopers, imported cabbageworms, etc.). At their largest, they're less than 3/8" long and quite plump. The plants are in a bed that's been under an Agribon row cover since mid-October. The bed also includes various lettuces, kohlrabi, and arugula, none of which have been affected -- just turnips and oriental greens. Any ideas?
