Lappet Moth Caterpillar

Dear Pete,
We were not aware that modern cameras produced such low resolution images.  This is a Lappet Moth Caterpillar in the family Lasiocampidae, and we found a matching image on iSpot, but it is only identified to the family level.  We are post-dating your submission to go live to our site later in the month when our editorial staff will be out of the office on holiday.
