What’s the name of this caterpillar
A friend of mine is a Butterfly collector who has approximately every butterfly that we can find here in Quebec. He came upon this caterpillar yesterday, and is unable to identify it, even after looking it up in his books. Have you an idea what this mysterious Canadian(?) Caterpillar can be?

Hi Gilbert,
The descriptive name for this caterpillar is Paddle Caterpillar, and it is the larva of the Funerary Dagger Moth, Acronicta funeralis.
