Hamadryas velutina (process of elimination)
Thanks Keith! Hamadras was actually also my candidate, but did not find a match and the time to check them closely until now.
Note that the supporting reference needs to be updated – H. chloe is now known to look very different.
This is not a moth, but a butterfly caterpillar. My closest guess would be Nymphalidae, Biblidinae. I have to check them again. I am on the road and have to do this later.
Thank you for your help I will update the name
Unfortunately, the best match does not name the species.http://www.notesonslowtravel.com/butterfly/
I think this is a Saturniid caterpillar.https://www.flickr.com/photos/andreaskay...
