Bif caterpillar in sphagnum moss...

Recommended Posts


This afternoon by potting one of my nep in the greenhouse, after opening a bag of peat moss called "living" purchased Jardi of Parad ** **, I am finding a huge hairy caterpillar in the same package ..



I'd love to know if anyone knew his name, in which case, I can learn about the natural environment, recreating a sort of micro-climate that would correspond. I'd avoid his death, perhaps, why not see the transformation of the latter into a butterfly ....

Having Googled the buff tip moth, I'd say it looks like one too...

Impressive patterning though. :biggrin:
