Thanks, Guys.

Hung, thie caterpillar is a new one to me, and I frankly do not know offhand the function of these branched spines. A lot of caterpillars have some type bristles or spines, but not all of them are as conspicuous as this one is. I can think of any number of possiblescenarioswhere the pattern, the spines,or the combination of both could be useful, butat the moment they would be only speculation.
