Hello,
I found this caterpillar on a low growing oak species in central Texas.
Any idea what it could be?
Thanks!

Tolype Caterpillar

Dear writerwren,
We are not having any luck trying to identify this caterpillar.  It appears that it may have stinging spines.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide an identification.

Update:  January 3, 2016
Thanks to a recent comment, we are inclined to agree that this looks like a Tolype Caterpillar which is pictured on BugGuide.
