Story behind this caterpillar: (English)
A while ago, I ordered eggs of Paradirphia semirosea from Mexico.
However, in this group of caterpillars, I have noticed one caterpillar of totally different colours and appearance.
My guess is it must be a different species. It travels and feeds with the Paradirphia semirosea group, which is why I did not notice it before.
A single wild egg of another species must have been mixed up with my Paradirphia.
It is bright red in appearance, with white markings and milky white/yellow spines. Pictures attached.
It could be hard to ID this, does anyone know what it could be? Thanks!
