Are you able to identify this caterpillar for me? I think they are dropping out of our pecan trees. They are about 3 inches long. I am located in north central Florida. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Dear Janet,
We believe this might be the Caterpillar of an Underwing Moth in the genus
Catocala.  According to Entoweb.OKstate:  “Pecan catocala commonly feed on pecan, hickory, and other trees.”
