Sawfly Caterpillar

[Eriocampa mitsurii - caterpillar]
[caterpillar of a kind of sawfly]

Summer is in full swing here in Iwate and the bugs are out in full force. I found a bunch of these beauties in Hiraizumi near the Koromo River this past weekend! You can learn more about this species and see pictures at Shigenobu AOKI's web site. He has a lot of info about all kinds of bugs!

Special thanks to Eiji for his kind help!
