Sorry to keep bugging you. I really enjoy taking bug pictures. Here are some pictures of a caterpillar that I found today. What kind is it, please? Dallas, Georgia

Hi Lee,
You keep sending us great quality images of one interesting specimen after another. At first we thought this was one of the Prominent Moth Caterpillars in the family Notodontidae and then misidentified it as a Horned Spanworm, but Cameron set us straight by writing in: “Unless it’s another name for the species I think your Horned Spanworm is actually the Curve-Lined Owlet. It only eats Geenbrier. Cameron” The Curve Lined Owlet, Phyprosopus callitrichoides, can also be seen on BugGuide.
