Orangebar Sulphur – Phoebis Philea Larvae
Hello Bugman,
Didn’t see this in your database as I was trying to identify it. I found it on another site and I thought you might want to add it to your site. I took this photo on a bush in my yard today. Almost didn’t see the caterpillars. I have a few shots of these so let me know if this suffices. Thanks,
Chris Sizemore

Hi Chris,
Two weeks ago we received a letter from Donna in Florida with images of two caterpillars she found on her Cassia, the flower in your photo. We identified them as color variations of the Cloudless Sulphur Caterpillar, but someone wrote in that one was possilby the Orange-Barred Sulphur. It seems one color variation of the Cloudless Sulphur Caterpillar resembles the the caterpillar of the Orange Barred Sulphur. Thanks for sending in your photo.
