Lasiocampid larvae (Tolype/Apotolype) on Prosopis September 08
Dog Canyon, Otero County, New Mexico



Look closely...there are two larvae, one above and one below the branch.  Very cryptic!  I am hoping they pupate at this site.

A third larvae...not so cryptic after a rain and the bark is darkened

A fourth larvae...Very cryptic.

A fifth larvae....Very cryptic 

Two larvae face to face 

What a face!

I could find no records of Lasiocampid larvae on Mesquite, or any larvae pictures that were close
