English term or phrase:buck mouth caterpillar
I have a list of insects (Arthropods), including Lepidoptera - puss caterpillars, browntail caterpillars, and buck mouth caterpillars. I haven't found any relevant information about these "buck mouth caterpillars", so I suspect it's a misspelling. Could you point me into the right direction? What could they be?
Another hint: the whole list is of "Harmful Arthropods of the United States".
Thanks everyone! These species are not indigenous to Romania, so we don't have common names for them...
Puss caterpillar/moth is Megalopyge opercularis, browntail caterpillar is Euproctis chrysorrhoea, and buckmoth/buck moth caterpillar is Hemileuca Maia. I hope I'm right :)
