We had the same thing on our trees, looks like a part of the tree.  Can you treat with lemons on your tree?

I have the same worm on my Meyer Lemon Tree and on my Key Lime tree.  



I bought an organic spray from Home Depot and sprayed both trees.

I am sorry I do not remember the name of the product, however it was the only organic spray for edible foods.



I think that the organic spray worked.... because I observed the worm on the same leaf yesterday and today and it had not moved.  So I removed it and placed it in a glass jar with the leaf.(with plastic wrap with holes so it could breath if it is a butterfly)   The worm still hasn't moved, so I think the product worked
