looper - measuring worm (geometridae insect larva)

Hey, what's that tiny thingy on my finger???

This insect larva (family Geometridae), is called Measuring worm, Looper, Cankerworm, or Inchworm.­ It is the larva of any of a large group of moths in the order Lepidoptera.­ Because the larva lacks the middle pair of legs, it moves in a characteristic “inching,” or “looping” gait by extending the front part of the body and bringing the rear up to meet it.­ (source: www.­britannica.­com/­animal/­measuring-worm).­

If you can identify the exact species, please post a comment or email me!
