Thank you Adarsha and Feroz :)
Amazing caterpillar :)Looks like saddle-back caterpillar though:)
@ Noel B and bayucca thanks !
Thats a great suggestion Jolly .... this one was a chance encounter . probably next time i keep a container handy for such encounters :-) thanks again for the suggestion.
By the way, your shot is magnificently detailed. Beautiful.
If you cannot positively identify this caterpillar, I suggest you keep it in a container and continue to feed it with its preferred plant until its metamorphosis is complete and you will be able to see the adult for easier identification - that if you have the time and patience to feed it daily and keep the enclosure clean.
I think for now i will update the id to Limacodidae caterpillar.
Wow! Nice spot Atul!
I previously checked for Parasa sp. as well, but didn't find any match. I can not imagine other family than Limacodidae.
Thank you so much guys!
Great Detail my friend
superb spot !! i think it's Parasa sp. - Limacodidae not sure 100%
Incredible caterpillar! I hope you are able to get an ID.
