You may remember I posted a series of moth egg photographs. Well one of those photographs was of eggs which I only recently found in the backyard and some have begun to hatch. This poor fellow seems to have died (not unusual) and so it maid a good subject for the microscope. It's not the best picture but keep in mind it is less than 1mm in length. I also ended up with a posterior view so not the most aesthetically pleasing.
The shape of the eggs and the appearance of the caterpillar suggest to me that it may be a Noctuid but this is just a wild guess. The Shape of the eggs is very similar to the Gum leaf skeletoniser - Uraba lugens but they are laid in a different pattern.
My little microscope is not set up for photography. This was taken by hand holding a camera at the eye piece.
