Very red caterpillar with a prominent 'horn'.
Primary rainforest at around 230 m in Amazonian Peru.
Thanks Ashley and (belatedly) Antonio.Sadly I have not really been able to give any information on the caterpillar other than the location and habitat.
Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
