This caterpillar was resting with many others on a wall at a rest stop, near Hanauma Bay, O‘ahu, Hawaii. Also known as the Koa looper, they feed on Koa trees (Acacia koa), which was commonly found around the rest stop/restroom. Was about 1.5 inches long, and was acting just like a black witch moth caterpillar.
This one was found in the island of Oahu, in Hawaii.
Was spotted in a rather dryer climate, which makes it easy for it's host plant (Acacia koa) more abundant.
