Caption: Cecropia Moth Caterpillar (Hyalophora cecropia) on a leaf. This species grows to become the largest moth in North America (wingspan 160mm). The caterpillars are covered with small black spines growing from protrusions known as tubercles. The spines are not harmful but are thought to act as a visual deterrent.
