Umber Skipper larva - Poanes melane

Umber Skipper larva - Poanes melane
Alameda County, California, USA
July 6, 2014
Size: 18.4 mm
By this time, I had provided a "garden," including leaf litter and live grass plants in soil. The larva usually stayed in its shelter in the daytime. One day, it appeared on the edge of the container, creating an unusual opportunity to measure and photograph it.
