Larva after molting - Acleris variegana
Alameda County, California, USA
August 14, 2010
The larva ten days later, being reared on blackberry leaves. At right is a cast-off exoskeleton with two objects on it. The object at about the middle is the head capsule. Below that is something round; could it be a parasite's egg, shed with the skin?
