enter image description hereI found this caterpillar on my balcony in Athens, Greece. It's growing quite fast, eating about a leaf per day, choosing new baby leaves.

Please let me know what it is! Does it turn to a butterfly or moth?

I believe this is probably a geometer moth relative because it seems to have only two pairs of prolegs rather than the usual five.


Note that not all moths are necessarily ugly or poisonous.

  • It is growing rapidly, and almost getting a green hue to it's body!
