Tolype velleda – Large Tolype

Hodges # 7670

Caterpillar foods:  apple, ash, aspen, basswood, beech, birch, cherry, oak, and other woody species  (Wagner)

9/18/2004  Found on the Knife Edge Point.  I suspect that it had just hatched, and the white thing that it’s sitting on is the cocoon that it emerged from.

 

9/8/2011  Came to my lights.  I think this is a female – large (about 3 cm long), with pale, less contrasting markings.
