The last photograph I took of the caterpillar just before pupation. The coloration and appearance of the caterpillars did not change much through the different instars.

Thanks for the link, Steve
We moved a number of images to the murina page because of it. We find it amazing that two caterpillars in the same genus could be so different. If we had been searching for this caterpillar we would have been looking in Zygaenidae! Still so much to learn...

Larvae
see larva of murina illustrated here.

Interesting. I very recently asked Dave Wagner if I could be "in range" for P. murina and he asked to see my larval photograpphs. Just got home to send them to him and found John and Jane's post.

Hope to see another one to bar code.

Thank you. Hope you had a great trip!
