Find the Inchworm-in PNG! Ok Jungledragon, I hope to stump you with this one. This guy was amazing! It’s a white camouflage inchworm on a pine tree. Found in the Aiyura Valley, Eastern Highlands, Papua New Guinea. I have a video of it if someone would like it. Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

  1. Wow! Love it, great job spotting it! I would guess that it is an Enispa sp. lichen caterpillar. I’ll try to find a link for you... Posted 2 years ago
    1. It might be Enispa elataria: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/18979976

      Or else some other species in the Enispa genus. Photos for comparison:

      About the video...do you have a Vimeo account? You can embed Vimeo video links in the description under the photo.
