Your letter to the bugman:  I found the caterpillar here in your pages. I see many different prominent moths. We wondered what moth comes from the specific pink one we found.

Pre-Pupal Prominent Moth Caterpillar

Dear Larry,
We just finished posting another pink Prominent Moth Caterpillar.  Like that individual, we are confident your individual is in the genus
Heterocampa, but we are not certain of the species, and we cannot currently access BugGuide, which must be experiencing technical difficulties.  Heterocampa Caterpillars are green, and many turn pink or purple as metamorphosis time nears.
