Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I found this little guy on a hike through forest where all the pines had been cut down because of pine beetle disease, and the aspen trees were flourishing. It had just rained and this is the only caterpillar I found. This was at the middle trail head to Maxwell Falls, south of Evergreen, CO.

Coordinator notes: Coordinator 1. Should be sent to Chuck Harp for ID. I'd be interested to know what this is myself as the caterpillar is rather unusual. There is no dot in CO on the map which is reason to reject the submittal. Maybe its behind "CO?"
Coordinator 2. Used "Evergreen, CO" as locale for map as this was outlined in observer notes. Based on habitat, food plant, locale, and appearance (compared to photos on bugguide.net), I believe this is Furcula scolopendrina - Zigzag Furcula Moth - Hodges#7940.
