According to Caterpillars of Eastern Forests
there are three southern species that look similar. I want to call this Anisota virginiensis
, but does anyone know how this is distinguished from A. pellucida
, or what the third look-alike is? Found on Parthenocissus quinquefolia
, Virginia Creeper, but probably came down from the oak tree above.
CoEF describes the face of A. virginiensis
as orange-brown, whereas this one is green - I wonder if that is important?
