Not sure if this is the right place for this post, but....does anyone know what this is? It's about an inch long and there are three of them~so far~eating my Cimicifuga. (Google hasn't given me any help so far.) Thanks in advance.
I don't know exactly what your caterpillar is - there are SO many caterpillars out there!
But by the shape of the body, it almost has to be in the Notodontidae/prominent family of moths. It most closely resembles the double-toothed prominent and the northern finned prominent. They all make plain moths.
Thanks for posting the interesting picture!
I was going to say the same thing, MissSherry - double-toothed prominent. I find them on elm leaves a lot. Quite a fascinating caterpillar in appearance for such a plain moth.
Thanks ladies~I appreciate it!
