Caterpillar Identification

Posted by on Feb 20, 2016 | 0 comments

Spring has sprung for some of you in the more southerly climates, so I thought it would be fun to include this moth and butterfly caterpillar identification guide. I had the opportunity to watch a cecropia moth hatch last year – it was a very cool experience and I was amazed by how active the moth could be while still in its cocoon and trying to get out.

Here are a few other sites that offer detailed information on the life cycles and habitats of the east and west U.S.:

Lepidoptera of the Pacific Northwest

Caterpillars of the Eastern Forests
