we have these....

they can make a nasty mess of Cape Figwort garden plants(Phygelius).The larva are grubs that make a black mess.The adults look like a small birds's mess so I guess they do not have many predators.I took some photos of them on Figwort(Scrophularia) recently but have not got them on Ispot yet.Thought I would show the other stages.I see there are some already linked showing this.Your Buddleia won't suffer as badly being a stronger shrub.
