|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Caterpillars do not breathe through their mouths. Air enters their bodies through a series of small tubules along the sides of their thorax and abdomen. These tubules are called spiracles, and inside the body they connect together into a network of airtubes.|
Caterpillars do not have very good eyesight or senses. Rather than having fully-developed eyes they have a series of six tiny eyelets or stemmata on the lower portion of their head. They rely on their antennae to help them locate food. The larvae of sawflies differ from true caterpillars in this respect, as well, as they have prominent ocelli on the head capsule.
