These little guys are in clusters as shown in the photo above in several places and are eating their way across the yard. Anyone recognize this leaf eater from western Massachusetts, USA? Thanks in advance!

Welcome! That looks pretty weird! Excellent photo. Do they ever separate? If they separate a picture of one would be helpful unless someone else recognizes it.

Check with the local county extension service, they be able to help.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you Sooby! I have only seen them in these clusters and not individually. Also, thank you crawgarden, I will see if I can get a hold of the extension service at UMass per your recommendation, thank you.
