Larva photographed by Amanda Steenson. Markings suggest possibly M. rustica, but the rosy color...?
The caterpillar was light leafy green, with light angled line pattern on its side. It had a needle thick hook on its rear. It walked across cement floor in the garage at a steady but quick peed. About two, two and a half inches long and half an inch wide.
