Caterpillar foods: apple, beech, birch, elm, hickory, linden, oak, willow and other trees and shrubs (Covell)
8/31/2008 These caterpillars are amazing to look at. They’re like jewels – tiny (1/2 inch long), translucent, and bright colored. I found this one on top of a leaf at night – while searching leaves with a flashlight. Unfortunately I didn’t record what kind of leaf it was eating.
