Celerio sister

Adelpha serpa celerio


Looks like and Adelpha serpa celerio caterpillar but this is my first time spotting one so I would rather get some help. This beautiful caterpillar has an interesting defense mecanism and inflates a round protuberance at the end of his body in order to divert predators from it's head.
