Hunting larvae of Hemileuca eglanterina wild silk moth

June 2, 2007. San Gabriel Mountains, Los Angeles County, California. We are trying to find larvae so we can rear the moths to the adult stage and get a live unmated female for calling males in the field. CORRECTION: The 'chokecherry' mentioned in the narrative is actually Bitter Cherry: Prunus emarginata. In the Rose family: Rosaceae. [Sony Cybershot DSC-T50]
