Phobetron cf. hipparchia
A hairy spiny caterpillar with fleshy appendages on both sides.
Found on the old rust covered leaves on an avocado tree. It's color seemed to be a perfect match for the leaf rust, making it very well camouflaged (see final image in the series). Based my ID on comments made in this spotting of a very similar caterpillar, http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/846... --Update-- The next day I found the caterpillar had molted and changed it's appearance quite a bit. For those interested it can be found here, http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/400...
Lat: 11.00, Long: -85.28
