This caterpillar was seen on a hackberry plant (Celtis) but was taken in (until grown to adult) due to the massive numbers of parasitoid wasps, that make these caterpillars numbers fall. These caterpillars are very tricky to spot, because they blend in very well in the hackberry leaves. Luckily it was hanging down on a silk thread from the plant, that made it visible.
