My husband found this gem in his roofing pouch, wondered if it came off the walnut tree and what kind it is. Underwing perhaps?
This is the Caterpillar of an Underwing Moth in the genus Catocala. Underwing Moths get their common name from the brightly colored underwings that flash while the moth is in flight, but are concealed beneath bark patterned forewings that act as camouflage when the Underwing Moth is at rest. We are postdating your submission to go live during our absence from the office in mid-June.
