Caterpillar - Pryeria sinica

Caterpillar - Pryeria sinica
Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
May 8, 2009
Size: Less than an inch
I know its caterpillar season, I've seen the nests all over. I found a few of these guys in my backyard, some hanging from their web or whatever. I've never seen these kind of caterpillars before though.
Sorry for the not so great pictures.

Ah! This is just the right county!
We're thinking these are Pryeria sinica. Do you have Euonymus nearby? See here and here
