Artist's Description

Goldenrod Hooded Owlet Moth Caterpillar
Cucullia asteroides

Caterpillars have poor vision. They have a series of six tiny eyelets or ‘stemmata’ on each side of the lower portion of their head. These form well focused, but poorly resolved images. They move their heads from side to side as a means of judging distance of objects, particularly plants.

Caterpillars have been called “eating machines” and eat leaves voraciously. Most species shed their skin four or five times as their bodies grow, and they eventually pupate into an adult form.
