Hello. I observed and photographed this amazing specimen on August 7th at our cottage. It was 4-5 inches long. I searched and I searched the web to try to ID what type of moth this is, but without any success (but I did learned about many other beautiful large green caterpillars!!). I’ll be able to sleep better and smarter once I know what this is 🙂

Dear Daniel,
This is an Imperial Moth Caterpillar, and you are correct that it will eventually metamorphose into a large and beautiful Imperial Moth.
