CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Groundselbush Beetle Larvae (caterpillar) (Trirhabda bacharidis)
Larval host: Saltbush (Baccharis halimifolia).
Not the most attractive as adults, but this larvae certainly is eyecatching. I have watched wasps zero in on this important resource to gather as a host for their eggs and provide food for their own larvae.
