The pecan catocala is a member the Noctuidae family and is commonly known as an underwing moth. I always find one or two caterpillars per year in our pecan grove but populations never grow large enough to cause significant damage to our trees.
(Remember, you can click on the photo to enlarge it. The caterpillar is in the lower center of the photo with its head pointing down.)
