at www.schmetterling-raupe.de, i found a VERY IMPRESSIVE site containing lots of photos and information for classifying butterflies and caterpillars.
i’ve found several kinds that i had to name just “caterpillar”, because i couldn’t identify them…
- garden tiger (arctia caja; brauner bär)
oak eggar (lasiocampa quercus; eichenspinner) (?)
buff-tip (phalera bucephala; mondvogel-raupe)
ermine (yponomeuta sp.; gespinstmotte)
rose sawfly (arge pagana; blauschwarze rosenbürstenhornblattwespe) – the german name is just lovely! can’t wait for my next game of hangman :grin:
thanks to walter from schmetterling-raupe.de
