Backside...with evidence! 3 of 4 - Synchlora aerata
Martinsville, Henry County, Virginia, USA
July 20, 2009
Well, when I was watching this caterpillar, all covered in dried thyme flowers, it was difficult to distinguish which end was up at times. I'd lost my point of reference, and thought I was focused on the head of the caterpillar until this dark fecal mass was neatly dropped onto the top of the stalk of thyme!
