The species native to the eastern US is American Sweetgum.
I don't know if there are other introduced species present in the area???

Where was it? Maybe a Greenhouse Frog ( Eleutherodactylus planirostris ) they normally live in garden soil or potted plants. I have a bunch in my large potted plants on my porch.

These are very common on outside walls here around Miami. See my third photo for the caterpillar.

Agree with Mr. EnvUnlimited. I just want to comment about scientific name; here's the ID on bugguide.

Actually I think there's a bunch of your pictures. The green caterpillar is mine. I see that the ID here on those insect photos were given by ThomasCaelifera. The spider, the bettle, and the Orange moth. Maybe he has good intentions and was trying to help us with ID, but you shouldn't pass other people's pictures as your own. And I don't mean to accuse without being sure, but to me it looks suspicious.

Machi, someone ( I suspect from this site ) took one of my photos, cropped it and submit it to bugguide as their own. The name of the user in bugguide is Applesnapple's. I also recognize one of their pictures as actually yours. Do you know anything about it?
