Has to be Lace-capped Caterpillar - right? - Oligocentria lignicolor
Baton Rouge - BREC Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, USA
October 21, 2007
Size: about 3/4 inch
Found on a boardwalk, so no lead as to host plant.
Found at the edge of the swamp, but several upland trees also in the area.
First one like this that I have seen.
Found by a young girl visiting the park.
I had walked right past without noticing.
