Lophocampa mixta

Lophocampa mixta


These caterpillars were everywhere on our hike. They are heavily fuzzy, have a yellow to green tinge on the body, and four distinct black spines near the head and rear. Compare with a more fuzzier version, perhaps so due to age?


Very common to see them making their way down from a tree via silk web -- an amazing spectacle!
