Caterpillars in June

After reading Otterman’s “Does Lyssa zampa eat?”, I wondered if the three different types of caterpillars I saw one afternoon at MacRitchie in June, acting gregarious, were also doing a Lyssa zampa. Note the fig tree on the right stripped of its leaves by munching caterpillars on each branch. The forest has been busy, unbeknownst to many…

Note: I originally posted the sightings in Mar but realised that it was actually in early June that I saw them in MacRitchie.
