Hi my name is Ron and I have a natural history museum in northern California. I teach kids on the side natural history. Last evening a Montana based friend who was once in my science club, sent me your sight. I want to tell you how much I appreciate it. I looked for three species of caterpillar that I can’t ID on your sight but didn’t see any of them, but sure saw a lot of neat stuff. I would like to list my three with you in hopes of you identifying them. Thank you so much for your service.
We are only able to view one of your caterpillars, and it is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar in the genus Orgyis, but it doesn’t seem to exactly match any images on BugGuide.
