A beautiful caterpillar...

Thank you so much bayucca.
I have lots of both butterflies in my Garden, Rusty-tipped Page, Siproeta cf. epaphus is smaller than Siproeta stelenes, I just can not see Siproeta stelenes caterpillar to be because of the size of Siproeta stelenes, so I am sure your ID is correct. Thank you again.

Tricky one. I think it is Epaphus not Stellendes, although they look quite similar. But the yellowish spikes at the side let me think of Epaphus rather than Stelenes.
