Spiny Oak Slug Moth Caterpillar
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.
