Camouflaged Looper (Synchlora aerata)

By using silk, the Wavy-lined Emerald Moth caterpillar adorns its body with plant fragments, usually flower petals, to camouflage itself as it feeds. When the petals begin to wilt and discolor, they will discard their outdated camouflage and replace with a new ‘coat’. They feed on a wide variety of plants, including the flower heads of composite flowers and other flowering plants, as well as shrubs and trees.

The trouble with bug is that its usual meaning “beetle” or “insect” surfaced in texts only at the beginning of the seventeenth century, in contrast to bug “devil,” which has been known since the Middle English times. Although it is natural to suppose that beetles were associated with all kinds of demons, bug in its entomological sense is such a neutral word that its expressive origin comes as a surprise.
