I found one of these caterpillars in Woods Hole on July 7, 2013. It reminded me of a scorpion with the tail end sticking up and the two long black antennae.Took some photos and let it go on its merry way.

Hello. I believe I saw this little catapiller today at my work in Falmouth, Massachusetts. It was on a bag of dog food a customer of mine was buying. My manager's daughter placed this beautiful catapiller in a nearby bush. I have never seen this type of catapiller before. He or she had black antenna with white squares on its back. This must be the type of catapiller I saw. It's interesting to see the type of moth it turns out to be. :) Thank you for your collection of different types of catapillers.
