September 14, 2009
I was at my Grandmother’s today and I grabbed a quick shot of these guys chowing down.  I believe I’ve correctly identified them via your site (because your description specifically mentions parsley!)
I hope you like this group shot of what I believe are Anise Swallowtail Caterpillars.

Thanks for maintaining such a great site,

Black Swallowtail Caterpillars? or Anise Swallowtail Caterpillars???

Black Swallowtail Caterpillars

Hi Casey,
Since you did not provide a location, we are not certain if these are Black Swallowtails or Anise Swallowtails.  The caterpillars look very similar and both will feed on parsley.  If you live in the central to eastern states, these are Black Swallowtails.  If you are west of the Rocky Mountains, they are Anise Swallowtails.

I live in Georgia so they would be Black Swallowtails.
Thanks guys.
