Caterpillar on Crinum Lily : Nasik : 060113 : AK-2: These Caterpillars are seen only on these Crinum Lilies, eating away the stem & buds.
Pictures taken in our Nasik home garden on 9th & 10th August, 2012.
Can you please identify these Caterpillars?
these are Lily Moth Caterpillars..they feed voraciously on plants of the Lily family. 🙂
This is a caterpillar of a Forester moth [Eusemia adiatrix of Family Argasitidae]. Will send my photographs of it defoliating Glory Lilies later. My photographs of it on Antidesma bunius [locally called Amati, Ambuti or Mala] are already in the archives of this group.
Thanks. Forester Moth pictures on Google search seem to look different.
The pictures look like Lily Moth Caterpillar. Will wait for validation.
My photographs taken on my property at Shahapur on 23th September 2012.
