This is one of the 6 Pagoda plants I have around the yard. The Swallowtail butterflies love them.
This is one of the caterpillars I found. You can see where it has been munching on the leaves.
The one above must be a bit younger than the one below……... It appears almost white with black markings.
This one looks a bit more like a pale yellow, but both were on Pagoda Plants.
I haven’t been able to identify it other than a possible Tussock Moth? Leave a comment if you know what it is.
Looks like there might be two black tufts front and rear.
I didn’t realize how long the hairs are until I saw the picture. It has a pretty pattern on it’s back.
And a cute little black face.
I did not handle this one. I’ve been reading about fuzzy caterpillars and some of them can cause a rash or sting, so I’ll play it safe until I learn just what it is.
