Nystalea sp. (Notodontidae)
Gracias luis, eso mismo dije cuando los vi
Yes, finally :)
Thanks Carol, unfortunatelly I dont have any ID for this one yet , I have been keeping its cocoon for 3 months so far but it looks like nothing is going to emerge from it
This deserves spot of the day too! WOW! Any update on this ID?
Whoa, cool caterpillar!
Well, it looks like a prominent caterpillar, in the family Notodontidae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notodontida...). I'm not sure of anything more specific than that, but with great pictures like those, there's a pretty good chance we can narrow it down :)
I've been close enough to an alligator to touch them. I would scream like a girl if this landed on me...
It's a good candidate for monster movie :)
wow that's so cool
It looks a lot like the Unicorn Caterpillar, but yours are very very special. I love them! :)
Sure Carol, I will when I find the ID, I hope it doesn`t take too long
It does look like the Unicorn Caterpillar
E-mail me when you find the ID if you don't mind. I am so so curious. Can you send it to a university for ID in Costa Rica. Of course, unicorn. I was trying to think what it looked like; many times ID are so simple with the name.
