American Dagger moth caterpillar

Acronicta americana


I was walking with my mom and we saw 4 of the caterpillars yellow and white. We looked it up online to find out what it is.

Hello! I moved your caterpillar to the group Arthropods for you. I also blanked the scientific name because that is reserved for the Latin name assigned to the species. (I moved the name you had there to "Notes". If you don't know the scientific name, it's not a problem, just leave it blank. But remember to tick the box that says "Help me ID this species" :-)
