NJMC Botanist Kate Lepis found the caterpillar adorned with Goldenrod flowers at Skeetkill Creek Marsh earlier this month, and took the photo above.
The moth caterpillar is Synchlora aerata -- a.k.a. a Wavy Lined Emerald Moth caterpillar.
More info on this caterpillar can be found here.
How cool is that!!
More of Kate's shots of the moth follow. (Thanks, Kate!)
