Stinging Rose Caterpillar Moth (Parasa indetermina)

The black-tipped spines on the elongate body wall projections have poison glands at their bases. Venom enters the skin of humans or animals when the caterpillars are touched and the tips of the spines break off. The caterpillars are said to be capable of producing skin irritation similar to that produced by saddleback caterpillar, which is considered among the most severe urticating caterpillars in North America. Specialized irritating spines, called caltrop spines, are present on the lateral horns of several segments.
