CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Salt Marsh Moth Caterpillar (Estigmene acrea)
These cats can be quite variable in color depending on what instar they are. I’ve seen them range from white to black, always with reddish feet and a yellow marked face. Larva has a wide range of food plants. This is the first time I ever encountered one on the passionvine. Usually I see them on Elderberry, Dogfennel or crawling through grasses.
Shown on Florida Native Plant: PURPLE PASSIONFLOWER (Passiflora incarnata)
