Happily munching away in the Community Garden by the Ala Wai Canal in Waikiki, Oahu.
Thanks to you both for this ID. I really enjoyed the links you provided. I will be searching for the Monarchs there sometime soon!
Looks like a monarch caterpillar to me. There are monarch butterflies in Hawaii. There is even a white morph that is becoming more common there. http://www.explorebiodiversity.com/Hawai...
I see on the link that it has occasionally been seen in Hawaii. I will have to look for it when I am there next. Is there any other caterpillar that looks exactly like this?
I wonder if the Monarch Butterfly has been introduced to Hawaii? So many things have!
