Wavy-lined Heterocampa
Heterocampa biundata

Observation date: August 31, 2019
Submitted by: tirvine2020
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This caterpillar was found on the ground beneath a fir tree, likely looking for a place to make a cocoon as it was quite large and slow. Also, there wasn't a definite identification of a possible host plant, as it was only near a conifer, of which most prominent caterpillars do not feed on, I believe.
