Angle Shades Head

Angle shades - Phlogophora meticulosa

Angle shades - Phlogophora meticulosa

Continuation of yesterday.

Since the larva of the Agle shades (Phlogophora meticulosa) was sitting on a leaf in my studio, I had plenty of time to make more pictures in detail.

 Here you have a view on its head with ocelli (simple eyes), setae (sensory hairs) and three frontlegs.
Caterpillars have three pairs of so-called Thoracic legs. These are jointed legs, attached to their thorax. These six legs remain when the larva turns into a moth.

Dutch: Rups van de agaatvlinder
