1965a Pseudocoremia suavis (Common Forest Looper) Larva

1965a Pseudocoremia suavis (Common Forest Looper) Larva
Geometridae, Ennominae - Body length: 30mm.

A final stage larva feeding on pine needles. These are the first records of this species in the UK and 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 these pictures in this album show the offspring stages.
