Caption: Gypsy moth caterpillar. Macrophotograph of a gypsy moth caterpillar (Lymantria dispar) on a leaf. The long hairs are to deter predators. The gypsy moth is found throughout the world in temperate regions, inhabiting forests and woodland. The caterpillars feed on the leaves of practically any tree, but prefer oaks. They are responsible for extensive loss of foliage, especially in the USA, where they were introduced in the mid-19th century. Their numbers are controlled with chemical and bacterial insecticides. Photographed in New York, USA.
