One of the highlights of my summer was finding my first Hickory Horned Devil, a huge caterpillar the size of a hot dog if not a smidge larger. I didn't see the little hitchhikers until later, as I was looking at the caterpillar photos. To give a sense of scale, the photo shows about half the width of the Hickory Horned Devil's body. Can anyone hazard an i.d. of these little beige fellows?
