cup moth caterpillar doratifera casta limacodidae 2011 insects
Hey what a cool looking caterpillar Andrew! :) I might have to google this moth I’ve never seen it!
Thanks, Gabe. The caterpillar is far more interesting than the moth but not as interesting as the other cup moth caterpillars.
I just googled it Andrew and it looks like the moth I photographed the other day!
Certainly looks like a slug, odd little creature,j
Yeah, not as pretty as the others.
Fascinating, hungry little critter, as you say … not as pretty as the others.You have a great collection of caterpillar images !
Thanks, Trish. There are 5 or so of them on the tree in the front yard. They are quite small at the moment so I’ll hopefully get to watch them grow and maybe take some more shots.
Thanks, Ray.31 March 2011
