A Hickory Tussock moth at the porch lights on May 14, 2004.
Thomas found yet another one in our yard W. Granby, CT. Looks like a variety of the Dagger Moth?
Found this crawling up a Liquidambar styraciflua.
Seen in Western Massachusetts on Sept 21, 2009
It's mid August in the Catskill Mountains. Was crawling on my Dad's railing near a hummingbird feeder. Knew it was special.
Not the best picture, I understand. Pretty sure I have the classification right, went back for better pic and he was gone.
This guy/gal was on a maple leaf attached to a falled maple branch from a wind storm last night! What kind of caterpillar is it and what does it turn into?
not sure is this the hickory tussock moth caterpillar?could you please let me know what type it is .
This is the container we put the caterpillars in. Cute, fun thing to do with the kids on a Saturday, until you find out the caterpillars are toxic!
I found this on my deck today.. Thought it was strange, im glad i researched it
