    Another Wavy-Lined Heterocampa caterpillar, like my previous post. Earlier instars have antlers!

    Also, I forgot to post this Unicorn Caterpillar. Like the related and nearly identical Morning Glory Prominent caterpillar (aka False Unicorn Caterpillar), this caterpillar mimics the appearance of curled, drying leaves. Members of this genus can spray acid from their hump!

    While we don't have Jewel Caterpillars—what Snom was based on—in my part of the world, this one sure looks icy!

    Also, I was starting to think that sphinx caterpillars were going to evade me all year, but I finally found one!

    Still hoping to find a Dunsparce Tersa Sphinx caterpillar!
