Spotting

Description:

I found this pretty big caterpillar species again exactly after a year in the same area I found it previously in the Sharjah desert. I'm now doubly curious as to what this caterpillar would grow into. Any help with id much appreciated. Rgds, Ajmal

Habitat:

Desert habitat; sand dunes; gravel plains; Haloxylon salicornicum (host plant)
