It fled in the night. :(
When it is the same, then your caterpillar is most probably not Prolimacodes sp.

Such a box-like body.
Limacodidae, reminds me of Prolimacodes sp. and Prolimacodes badia, but I am not sure if it from the genus/species. There is also a Prolimacodes trigona.https://www.flickr.com/photos/dominikhof...https://www.flickr.com/photos/dominikhof...https://www.flickr.com/photos/bob_barber...https://www.flickr.com/photos/80674874@N...https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:...http://caterpillars.unr.edu/brazil/speci...http://bugguide.net/node/view/446465http://bugguide.net/node/view/580415
It is not a pupa, lucky, is a caterpillar. It has a small hidden head and moves on the leaf.
This is just a guess, but it looks like a slug moth pupa. I have no idea what would be present in your neck of the woods as far as species go.
