Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I live in milwaukee wi and this caterpillar was in my bathroom. Im guessing he made his way in the house with the help of my dogs fur. I have a berry tree and raspberry bushes in my yard. He is very slow and likes to stay still for the most part and when I touch him he poops black dirt looking poop.
