Your letter to the bugman:  Hey there, just curious what kind if caterpillar this is? It was found on a mat. Underneath is same color but each “section” has a brown-orange spot. I tried to get it onto a leaf to get it outside and it was like a ninja doing backflips and freaking out! Never seen a caterpillar move that fast! Thanks!

Underwing Caterpillar, we believe

Dear K Hunter,
This looks to us like an Underwing Caterpillar in the genus
Catocala.  Here is a BugGuide image for comparison.

Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
