What is this caterpillar?

shannon74April 4, 2011

Hi everyone

I found a light green cat with horizontal white stripes (running head to rear) on my meyer lemon tree. No horn. I was surprised as I have never seen a cat besides GST on my citrus trees. I would like to know what he is AND what he might eat besides lemons, those are for GSTs only around here.

Sounds like it could be an owlet moth larva, also called a looper caterpillar. There are many kinds of loopers, though, and a photo would help.
