Large green caterpillar will small black spots (Achemon Sphinx Moth Caterpillar )

by Amy
(Regina, Sask)

Hello,


We found this light green caterpillar in my parents backyard in Regina, Sask. Canada. It's as long as a ring finger and we've never seen anything like it. It has six leg like appendages on each side. I thought it looked similar to the Achemon Sphinx caterpillar also from Regina I found on your insect ID page, but mine doesn't have any red and further googling added to my doubts. Thanks Moni for having a look and letting us know what this fascinating little creature is!

Seen in Hillsdale (Columbia County), New York, USA on July 21, 2012. I found it on the floor of a portapotty--not its natural habitat, as far as I can tell!

These little guys were eating away at the bottom of a milkweed leaf. Can't seem to figure out what they are. Can you help me?
