1" long caterpillar
Thanks guys! I guess the next one will need to be double or quits Dominik!
Shaken not stirred, my name is bayucca, caterpillarman bayucca...Thanks Keith for confirming I am happy that I got this one right, it was quite a tricky one for me! Thanks for the confidence! I got the double and the triple, what's next?? ;-)...
Yes, you are correct; hats off to Dominik! I thought it being both unhealthy and midsize would throw you off, but I was wrong. I am impressed – you have potential.
This does look very like the example in the link though.
Comment of Keith concerning the appearance in Sergio's:"Clearly a widespread Biblidini larva, but not the color I usually see."It looks like yours might be an earlystages, ehm..., early instar of my ihopethejackpotwinninglittlecrazycaty. You are quite risky to already take my suggestion as ID ;-)... I would wait for Keith...
Thanks Dominik! It looks very different in color to Sergio's spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/104...
I did not have much time spending on this caty yet. But I think it is a Nymphalidae, Biblidinae. There is not much info on the web about this kind of caterpillars. My closest guess until now would be Biblis hyperia which might be very variable. I think my eyes see some orange part but missing the typical "wavy" creamy parts at the side of the body of the later instars.Keith, I keep cool, shaken not stirred and get my white smoking jacket for the jackpot. Looser or winner???
