Any idea what this nasty little critter is? My husband brushed up against these while trimming a tree in our yard on the beach in Mexico. Sent him to emergency room. He said it hurt worse than when he ran over his foot with lawnmower. In severe pain for nearly 48 hours. Thanks for the help.

Hi Diane and Mike,
There are several U.S. sites devoted to stinging caterpillars. We do not recognize your Mexican species, but will try to research a more definite answer.
