Oiketicus abbotii - female

Oiketicus abbotii - Female

Moved from Omphalocera.

I've unlinked this from the other images you posted
since it's a different species, though found on the same plant. Here's a thumb of the other caterpillar to preserve the connection, and in case anyone wants to see it, a thumb of the host plant:

I have a fair amount of linked image series featuring different species on different pages, but because there is no interaction between the two, and the only commonality is the host plant, I like it, and will follow this example in the future.

I mainly did it because I found it confusing myself - I've used the thumb option in other situations where you want a link without implying a single creature is involved, though, and it comes in pretty handy.

Moved from Megarthridiini.
