I found this caterpillar climbing my daughter's trampoline pole today. We have a large eucalyptus tree above the trampoline and our neighbour's fir tree (of some kind) overhangs our garden. The only caterpillar I have found which looks like it is a Douglas Fir Tussock Moth Caterpillar, but info states they are found in N America and British Columbia. Please could you identify this for me? Many thanks
Thank you. I have looked them up and it certainly looks like some of the photos. I assume they don't all look exactly the same, so I think I will take it as being a Vapourer, rather than a Douglas Fir Tussock. I appreciate your help.
