Spotted Tussock Moth Caterpillar
Lophocampa maculata

tussock moth caterpillar
This Tussock Moth caterpillar was sharing lunch with many other caterpillars.  Quite a fancy tree with all the orange, black.and white. The
adult moth,  of which I don't have a photo, is light brown with darker brown zigzags. Very pretty. The larvae feed on leaves of willows and
other trees.  I'm not sure what kind this one is feasting on.  © Carol Davis, 9-7-2008
