Need ID on this caterpillar
Found this caterpillar on my sages and coyote mints eats leafs and builds nest at base of plants. About 1/2″ long. Located in Southern California
Second picture is another caterpillar I found in my backyard
One of the caterpillars is and Inchworm or Spanworm in the family Geometridae. We are not sure of the exact species as there are numerous similar looking caterpillars posted to BugGuide. We have a similar looking caterpillar that defoliates the new growth on our Matilija Poppy each spring.
