HELP INDEX NEXT UP PREVIOUS FEEDBACK ATG Spiny Oak Slug Moth Caterpillar (Family Euleidae)

This moth has received its name from its peculiar larval form. Suckers have replaced typical larval prolegs on the caterpillars, and the larvae seem to glide rather then crawl as most caterpillars do. Many larvae have bright colours and stinging hairs which can cause a rash on humans when they come in contact with skin. The caterpillars feed on leaves and create oval cocoons which hang between the leaves. [BM] {EB}
