Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This caterpillar was climbing on the wall of a house I was working in today! Unfortunately, I didn’t catch it on a plant (nor do I really know the types of plants in their yard) but the coloring seems pretty distinctive and I can’t find one that looks like it anywhere! It was crawling along up the wall, I assume hunting for a cocoon/chrysalis spot since thats the only time my cats ever venture out to walls. It wasn’t particularly close to any plants.
