The reason I ask is I wish to find out about them as a food source for my
lizards.  I breed bearded dragons and leopard geckos, and am always looking
for ways to improve the variety of their diet.  I recently read Leopard Geckos
by Jon Coote, and in it he describes tebos as a food source for Leopard
Geckos.  There isn't much information on them in the book.  It says they are
bright orange caterpillars of a South American moth, about 6mm in diameter and
about 25 mm long.  The only place I have found them for sale on the net in a
insect supplier in the UK (The book by Coote was also first published in the
UK), and I don't believe they're willing to ship to the US.  Neither place
have I found a scientific name.  Thanks for your help.
