WARNING: the larva to this moth has stinging spines.

With that said, this is one of my favorite caterpillars. It's a beauty, and I'm fascinated with its locomotion.

Host Plants: apple, beeches, chestnut, linden, maple, oaks, Prunis species, sycamore, willows and others.

Timer: 21.31 jiffies (0.21308898925781).
