Caterpillar Photographs Needed

We are working to expand our image gallery by adding new photographs of early life stages: eggs, larvae (caterpillars), and pupae. You can help! If you have submitted a sighting of a caterpillar (or egg or pupa) and it has been accepted, we might consider adding your photograph to the image gallery and species page. Go to our "Share Photographs" page find out how to get your photograph in the image gallery.

We are most interested in photographs of species or instars not already documented in the gallery. Visit the gallery and view all the caterpillar images to see how you can help.
