|Yellow-tail (Euproctis similis)?|
This group photograph shows their discarded skins and the remaining eight or nine larvae in various stages of development.
This caterpillar news replaces a proper mothblog because there is so little to report. Last night the temperature fell and the resulting globules of ice on the lawn give an indication as to how cold it was. A Pink-barred Sallow, four Green-brindled Crescents, a Large Yellow Underwing and two Angle Shades - nothing more. How will the bats fare?
