Does anyone know what type of caterpillar this is?
It is on an artichoke plant in El Paso TX.
This appears to be a Tussock moth caterpillar – Found in the south, this hairy caterpillar can defoliate small trees and they assemble hard-to-scrape-off cocoons. Watch out, their hair can be irritating to the skin. Remove and drop into soapy water.
