n ncaterpillar question
Hi Bugman.
I found the prettiest caterpillar i’ve ever seen on our campground in Maine & was wondering if you could give me a hand identifying it. It’s large & smooth with a single orange stripe running down it’s back, yellow stripes on it’s sides, & red stripes way down by it’s legs. I thought i would have no problem identifing it since it’s so bright & doesn’t have spikes or fuzz, but i’ve had no luck so far. Any idea what he could be? Thanks,
Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,
The caterpillar of the Brown Hooded Owlet Moth, Cucullia convexipennis, is a much comlier creature than the relatively nondescript brown moth it eventually metamorphoses into.
