What kind of caterpillar is it?
I found these destroying my native variegated wegalia bush. Last year they destroyed all leaves within 1-2 days, so this year I pulled them off. Just wondered what these were. Small, mostly about a centimeter. They look white-ish, but almost translucent. Thanks for any information on these little pests. Christine Allen

They are sawfly caterpillars. Sawflies caterpillars are the larvae of an insect that is related to bees and wasps (Order Hymenoptera), rather than butterflies (Lepidoptera) like most other caterpillars.
