Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I found numerous of these caterpillars in my carrot bed. They were not climbing on the tops of the foliage, however I found them when lifting the foliage off the ground. They would curl up into balls when disturbed. The foliage of the carrots appeared undamaged, despite removing 10 caterpillars. About an inch in length.
