This is a new one for me, dogwood sawfly is a creepy creep that will eat all but the midrib of the leaf. The bodies of the larvae become covered
with a white powder-like material to mimic bird droppings too protect them from predators. After their final molt they have a spotted pattern to camouflage them as they crawl over leaf litter.
These creeps are relativly uncommon in the Charlotte Metro area, but keep an eye out.
