Tussock Moth (Caterpillar)

Lymantriidae

Description:

Reddish-orange head, brownish antennae and tail, with 4 white tufts at the back. I was thinking if this was the White-marked Tussock Moth caterpillar, but I could not find anything saying that Southeast Asia is in its distribution range.

Habitat:

Spotted at a vanda orchid leaf. Backyard garden in Biñan Laguna, Philippines.
