undersides

The Caterpillars of LASIOCAMPIDAE are medium to large in size. Some are smooth, and some are hairy. Most have a pair of dorsal glands on abdominal segments six and seven. Many have flaps of skin overhanging their prolegs, hence the name "Lappet Moths" (a 'lappet' is a decorative flap of material on clothing). Many adults have elongated labial palps , which makes them look like they have long noses, hence their name "Snout Moths".

The 76 named Australian species of LASIOCAMPIDAE are:
