Tent caterpillars

English

Lasiocampidae is a family of moths of various sizes whose colour is generally dark, with stripes in different shades of brown. Some species are shaped like leaves. Their bodies often look too big for their wings. Their proboscis is reduced in size and non-functional.

Caterpillars are very hairy, and the sides of their bodies often have tufts of longer hair.
