IO Moth
I found the identification for these on the WTB web site, I thought you might find it interesting to see 6 larvae dining on the underside of the same hardy hibiscus leaf. I live in a suburb (North Richland Hills) that is northeast adjacent to Fort Worth, Texas

Hi Michael,
These look like earlier instar Io Moth Caterpillars that still have some growing and several molts to go. Thanks for sending us this social grouping image.

    I found 7 green caterpillars on my crepe myrtle tree – I notice leaves were missing (I guess they ate very well). of course I killed them will I have to spray my young tree to keep them off – or will they keep coming back
