Immatures of Hedylidae

dedicated to Bruce Walsh

Hedylidae are a likely sister group to butterflies. Their caterpillars look like Nymphalidae, and pupae are similar to Pieridae, but adults can be confused with Geometridae. Here are the relevant segments from the following paper: Kendall, R.O., (1976). "Larval foodplants and life history notes for eight moths from Texas and Mexico." Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society, 30(4): 264-271. This insect is currently known as Macrosoma heliconiaria Guenée 1857.
