My caterpillar's been decapitated!!

Ohh, wait.. That's right.. They molt.

It's got a more vibrant looking exoskeleton now.

Here's the old husk. That stick is a Capri Sun straw.

Anyway, I managed to identify the species: Simyra insularis, the Cattail caterpillar or Henry's Marsh Moth. Lives near rivers, streams, marshes and feeds on the grasses there.
