Christiane,This is actually a pair of mating Geometrid moths (the caterpillars are known as Looper). The scientific name is Uliocnemis partita (Walker, 1861).Here is a link to more information on this moth:http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...BTW - I am off to South America for the rest of the month. I hope to bring back some good images.sy Ken

VERY green--they almost look transparent against that background.
