This caterpillar has alternating bands of orange, black and white all along the body, and has eight black tentacles in pairs: on the mesothorax, the metathorax, and on abdominal segments two and eight. I spotted the caterpillars simply because the butterflies seemed to be attracted to this species of vine (photo #4). A previous spotting of the adult butterfly - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/303...
Common in the Brisbane area, as it is throughout the rest of Australia. This one was found on a native vine.
