Lep folks,
Last fall, a friend in New Mexico saw a caterpillar that looks a lot
like a woolly bear and he sent sent me a drawing of it.  He described
it as "about the size of a woolly worm, and woolly, and they have a
wide band in the middle, but it's yellow rather than orange.  The
rest of the fur is black, but with lots of white whiskery bristles
poking out."  His drawing is at:
If you know what it is, please let me know.  Many thanks.
