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.

Could this be... Colobura d. dirce larva?
