Fig 1
DESCRIPTION: Starting blackish and eventually turning into a large lime green creature with a black band that runs the entire length of the upper surface. The band expands towards the centre and creates a diamond shape that breaks up the whole colour surface. At the front of the body there are two false eyes that give the appearance of a larger specimen than actually seen and the two spiky tails have extendable pinkish flagellae. FOODPLANT: A greedy feeder on Willow or Aspen. SEASON: July to September.
