I am not able to find this caterpillar anywhere on the web. I live in DFW if that might help. This caterpillar fell on my head off of my 40+ ft pecan tree.
As you should have been able to tell by the behavior and the green color, that is a rare Paratrooper Caterpillar. By the single stripe, we can tell he's got the rank of private. :)
Looks like a moth, possibly. The closest I found was: Nadata gibbosa

Good call! Love the humor.
That was a good laugh. Thanks for the information.
