The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2005!

Return to the Trip Overview

Naughty bug!
Along the same stretch of rock I saw this little critter, so used my flash and macro gear to get a better view. What a naughty little bug! This caterpillar (Exyra semicrocea) is nibbling on the pitcher tip of a Federally Endangered species! Eesh!

Although they are not carnivorous, you might enjoy seeing the Houstonia caerulea (aka bluets) that were common here.
