Lepidoptera larva - Crinodes biedermani
Miller Canyon, Huachuca Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
September 25, 2008
Size: 7 cm
Found feeding on Ceanothus fendleri at 5200' elevation. Was found in this position. When disturbed it would arch even more to the point its anterior and posterior ends touched.
Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated.
