Moved- Nice one!
Moved from ID Request.

Great addition to the guide. This is certainly Proserpinus flavofasciata. The only other larval image in the guide is of an earlier instar individual. Also a first from Ontario in the guide.

White thoracic legs
Sorry this shot is a little blurry; wanted to include it to show the specimen's white thoracic legs and relative size. I've been told this one is its final instar prior to pupating; matches the one posted for this species on the Moth Photographers Group website.
