4 mm long oval green larva with branch spines & funky red horns
Thanks Chun & Lisa!And thanks you for your comment Jason!
mine was just a suggestion...but I think I have to agree with Chun on this after looking...the antennae like structures are absent in the slug moth caterpillar...maybe a mimicry example?
I never seen this in Indonesia! Great!!
Thanks for the correction Lisa!
Then you are on the right path, the adults should be nearby.
Thanks Chun! I'm really excited, I've been desperate to find a tortoise beetle!
Cool camouflage by the way, it matches the leaf's colour, hairs and thorns.
The tail and the spikes.....Looks like a tortoise beetle larva.
