A few years back I took a class at the Mt. Cuba Center to hear Doug Tallamy speak. He said that a nursery in New Jersey had a caterpillar nibbling away at all their White Turtle Head, Chelone glabra, and they were smart enough to have them identified before taking action. So everyone who took the course got to take home a White Turtle Head plant, which I still have today. So they're still around even in NJ but no where near as common. Excellent find.
