Thanks for the i.d. help and comments. It's the only E.p. I've ever seen, although with all of the wild grape around, you'd think they would be more common. Who knows, maybe they are and I'm just not seeing them.

Thanks for updating your spotting, but please make sure you enter the scientific name, too. That allows the spotting to be moved into the database and your spotting is then removed from the "unidentified" list. Thanks! :-)

Awesome caterpillar! Never seen any of these over on this side of the state. Are they common over there on the Eastern side?
