Hanging Rock State Park, Stokes County, North Carolina, USA September 22, 2012
Slug caterpillar. The host tree may be Sourwood (Oxydendrum arboreum), but that is not 100% certain. I believe this could be Adoneta spinuloides, but some of the comments on posted images of Adoneta have made me less sure of whether this could be A. bicaudata. ID help appreciated. Thanks!
