Graphium agamemnon

Description:

A green-spotted triangle caterpillar, 1st instar

On unidentified plant in a large semi-urban yard & garden adjacent to a disturbed patch of remnant forest.

Notes:

While I usually encounter this caterpillar on soursop/sirsak (Annona muricata), this plant is different.

The early instars of these two closely related species are VERY similar (likewise, G. wallacei might also be a possibility).
