I found this pretty caterpillar and would like to know what species it is. I live in northern Maine. I can’t figure out how to upload a picture so I’ll just describe it best I can. It’s base body is pink with orange markings the markings have changed color to a hot pink. It’s a hairless caterpillar and it has two black horn like things above it’s head.
To upload an image, there is an "Insert Image" button when in the full editor. You need to upload your image to an image hosting site (i.e. imgur, Google Drive, etc.) then copy the direct URL to that photo and paste it into the pop-up window when you select "Insert Image."
3. Click on the image you want to upload to this forum.
4. Click the copy button that is next to the link of "BBCode".
5. Paste your copied link in the post that you are making here on insectnet.
6. Don't do anything to the link/s and post after you are done typing whatever you want.
The links will turn into nice large images, and you can post lots of them in one post. Also, when you are making a post, you might notice a preview tab and a BBCode tab near the bottom. Leave both tabs alone, your images will still show up.
I am from New York. I keep thinking you are seeing a cabbage caterpillar or looper caterpillar.They chew on a wide variety of crops. Also are a group of a diverse butterfly-Moth group. I can't tell you which one you are seeing.But I know its one of those.
I write primers or field manuals in ecology (all grades).Also collect Tipulidae (Crane-flies).
