This caterpillar is called Tinolius eburneigutta. I've only seen one other caterpillar with tassles like this one, and that was on a "paddle caterpillar" in Illinois, the juvenile version of the funerary dagger moth. Tinolius eburneigutta is also a moth, but although it's referred to as a "semi-looper" because of the way it walks, it isn't really a member of the Geometridae family of "looper" moths.

Green-Perched Looper (J. Stiefel) wrote.. Whoever assigned its scientific name, must have seen what I did. Diachrysia is from the Greek prefix, dia, meaning "through, throughout, during, over, across," and the Greek word, chrysos, meaning "gold, gold-colored"; balluca, is from the Greek word, ballo, meaning "to throw, emit," and the Latin word, lucis, meaning "light."

Congrats to new Gold Loopers Paul & Stephanie, who crossed their wake in Fort Myers in November after cruising the Great Loop for eight months!

We counted 111 locks and 14 states in a journey we will never forget." www.GreatLoop.org
