Moth Caterpillar with Cocoons - Halysidota harrisii
Stafford, Stafford County, Virginia, USA July 19, 2005
I am assuming this is a moth caterpillar being host to parasitic wasps. I thought I had seen an image like this before in the guide but I have not been able to find it. Help appreciated just to verify that it is something parasitic or not.
