What’s this caterpillar?
We live in Oregon and found this caterpillar in our backyard. We were wondering if you could tell us what kind it is. Thanks so much,
This is a Spotted Tussock Moth Caterpillar, Lophocampa maculata. According to BugGuide: “Larvae prefer leaves of poplar and willow, but also feed on alder, basswood, birch, maple, oak.”
