Thanks Ken.. that looks like it! We have Castor plants around the creek!
No - the caterpillar of that geometrid has been described as: "These Caterpillars camouflage themselves with buds and flowers of the the plant on which they are feeding. They are actually pinkish brown with a dark dorsal line, but have flanges along the back to which their disguises are attached."I think I have found something close to your caterpillar:Achaea janataFollow this link:http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...sy Ken
So this is the caterpillar of this http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/638... one???
Sphinx moth larvae have only a single horn along the longitudinal midline whereas Geometrid larvae have 2 smaller, lateral horns.Cheers Ken
Some type of sphinx moth caterpillar? It has what looks like a horn on its posterior.
A looper caterpillar of the family Geometridae
