Common Castor Caterpillar

Ariadne merione

Description:

Green. Spiky. Touch at your peril. Voracious. Strips these broad leaves down to teh midrib and veins.

Habitat:

Feed almost exclusively on castor (Ricinus communis); so it is nice that there are plots of land lying neglected in our residential colony where these plants grow...at least for now.
