Horned Spanworm

Nematocampa resistaria


Has two projections on its back and camouflage like coloration.


Found it on the brim of my cap. Probably dropped out of the Live Oak above me.


Moth is in the Family: Geometridae. Is there any difference between spanworms and inchworms? If not is one term preferable to the other?
