I have seen this leaf-eating caterpillar (pest) on my newly grown plant in the pot.
for more details..
Thanks Deblonglookabill for ID suggestion..and ya this one has three white tufts so different species or subspecies..I have searched so much but have not find any caterpillar with three white tufts. however I have added wiki reference which gives idea about the genus and species..still searching for subspecies..
That's one of the Tussock moth larvae, but not sure which species. The ones we get here (Florida,US) have four tufts on their backs instead of the three this one has, and are considered pests.
