Found on Urtica dioica (Stinging nettles)
Thanks Nopayahnah for your support eyeing horns... After some hours of relaxing sleep I can see them even better!
Thank you Nopayahnah :)
I see horns. Cool spotting!
Maybe mine was stronger but you definately had more than I had ;-)I think I found it on my 17.3", but it is not very long...
Hmm, obviously the Carmenere was a little bit stronger than my Shiraz. I see some horns in yours...Ready? OK, you look at the middle of the 2 thumbnails, then you follow upwards until you reach the first caty, then you turn a little bit to the right (on my 13" screen about 1 cm) then you continue upwards until you reach the middle of the picture: There is 1 horn with 2 little yellowish hairs. Hmm ... you see two horns and 4 hairs? OK, go back to step 1.If you look at other caties you might see other horn directly on top of the head. But you have also different instars on the same picture.
Hehe :)I had some nice chilean carmenere, and I believe that you aren't drunk ;-)You are impressively quick...There is a contradiction in the links the one in the ID suggestion point out that the Araschnia levana caterpillar has horns, the other link doesn't show any horns, which mine doesn't have either...
I am always very fast, but my comment was out of connection... I will repeat it for you...Urtica is one of the most important host plants for butterfly and moths (at least in our area). I only know 3 completely black caterpillars: Vanessa cardui, Inachis io and Araschnia levana. Looking at what I can see (yes, I had an excellent diner with some fine Australian Shiraz and some little delicious old spirits of prunes and grapes, no, I am not drunk, proof is that I repeated this comment in express way...) I think it must be the Map. I add a link with all 3 species to compare:http://www.commanster.eu/commanster/Inse...
Thank you bayucca, you are so fast :)
