Xanthochroa hilleri

Walking home from the train station last night, I stopped at every vending machine to see what had been attracted to the lights. This is a false blister beetle (“false longhorn” is the translation of the Japanese).

  1. Sorry to be a bit off topic; I’m a long time lurker, I’ve been dipping in and out of your blog for a while. It’s awesome reading about all the different bugs that you’d never hear of otherwise.

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you would happen to know what this is; http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs099.snc4/36289_10150208849085206_561840205_13113346_5300209_n.jpg


    It’s a geometridae larvae, I’m pretty sure, but I can’t find which moth it might be. Any ideas?
