Green Oak Caterpillar - Nadata gibbosa

Green Oak Caterpillar - Nadata gibbosa
Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina, USA
July 8, 2005
A green speckled caterpillar with a yellow subdorsal longitudinal line and brown spiracles.

Nadata gibbosa
seems like a great fit. This fits the description of N. gibbosa in Wagner (1) page 288 very well. Large head, anal plate edged with yellow
