Green Caterpillar - Peridea angulosa Peridea angulosa


Ah, interesting
Forget our last comment. From this angle, with that big lined head, we would say Angulose Prominent, Peridea angulosa, Wagner, pg 292. Images in the guide here. Nice find!


Thanks for letting me know. It's not very often around the Muskoka area in northern Ontario that I've seen such a bright caterpillar.
Most are the dark green type with the red stripes. It was interesting to catch this one out of the corner of my eye crawling on the tree root.

Thanks again for your help!
