Day 17 -- Caterpillar A - Anicla infecta

Day 17 -- Caterpillar A - Anicla infecta
Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
June 15, 2011
Size: 8.2mm diameter
Now that they've grown up a bit, the caterpillars seem more wary and will curl up like this if they sense danger. They stay this way for some time, so I photographed this one both curled up and stretched out to determine an approximate ratio to get approximate lengths if I'm unable to photograph them stretched out. Those will be indicated with a tilde and lower precision in the remarks.
