1965a Pseudocoremia suavis (Common Forest Looper) Larvae

1965a Pseudocoremia suavis (Common Forest Looper) Larvae
Geometridae, Ennominae - Body length: 4mm.

Newly hatched larvae feeding on pine needles. These are the first records of this species in Europe, as its source is New Zealand. I have been recording occasional adult specimens in my back garden trap since 2007, but they are never more than singletons. I finally managed to induce a captured female to lay her eggs for me, and the next few pictures in this album show the offspring stages.
