Orchard Swallowtail Caterpillar

Hi Kristie,
This is an Orchard Swallowtail Caterpillar.  The images of Orchard Swallowtail Caterpillars in our archive have spikes.  The images of the Orchard Swallowtail Caterpillars on the Brisbane Insect website also have spikes.  We don’t know where you found photos of unspiked Orchard Swallowtail Caterpillars.
