Anatis larva, day 2 - Anatis labiculata

Anatis larva, day 2 - Anatis labiculata
Manayunk, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA
May 15, 2012
Size: 13mm
The larva has grown 3mm since yesterday and is over 1/2 inch long. I submitted this photo to show what may be important ID factors if I can rear it to adulthood: the narrow pale front and side margins of the pronotum, the entirely-orange lateral tubercles on the first and second abdominal segments, and the orange areas around the dark spines on the third through seventh lateral tubercles.
