Hello I again!!...
Some day ago, I did my third post in trek-Nature this was about a caterpillar.

This caterpillar was in a tree of frutal, but she not alone:

Here his friends!!!

In my four post I present your friend (ja ja), they were eating my tree, But that is Nature!


Now I have something more information on this type of caterpillar.
This as well as her friend, are moth larvae, are in a state of aldultez so it will soon be

converted into pupae and then will be moths.
For now found the following information on these larvae.
"Lepidoptera" is an order of insect that includes moths and butterflies

Classis: Insecta.
Subclassis: Pterygota.
Currency: Neoptera.
Subdivision: Endopterygota.
Ordo: Lepidoptera (Moths).
Superfamily: Bombycoidea.
Family:?

I think the family of this moth is "Sphingidae," but I'm not sure this
I agreadeceria if someone helps me identify it.

Hello Diego
What a huge caterpillar you captured here, very unique looking. Excellent detail, colour and lighting. It looks like he could really do some damage to the vegetation.
Good note.

Repito!... A ver si expones con mas frecuencia!... me gustaría ver mas close-ups como este, el nivel de detalles es magnifico. Por cierto, se trata de una oruga bastante curiosa, no he visto nada similar por estos lados. Gracias por la nota informativa anexa, da una pista de su clasificación.

estas dos fotos son increíbles, me encantan las orugas y estas son realmente extrañas, gracias por los consejos
