Parasite on Symmerista canicosta - Symmerista canicosta
Merrickville, Ontario, Canada August 20, 2016
I spotted some eggs on an oak tree and followed them along almost daily to eventually find out that they belonged to the Red-humped Oakworm Moth, Symmerista canicosta. My question is, can anyone tell me what has parasitized the caterpillar? Thanks for any help.
