n ncaterpillar question
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,
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.
