Moth. Zygaenoidea, Dalceridae. Some connections with Lymantriidae.

Thanks Bayuca .. It is the larva of a butterfly or a moth?

No, not Coa, this one is white and red. Most of these Dalceridae are unidentified. I think it is an Acraga sp., but I am not 100% sure (only 96%).

Could it be "Acraga coa", jewel caterpillar?
