Philiris innotatus synonym: Pseudodipsas evincalis
The Caterpillar feeds on the underside of a leaf, leaving the upper surface intact. This turns white in due course, which can be a handy guide to locating the Caterpillars. The Caterpillars are sometimes attended by ants of various species.
The larvae of this species feed on several species of Ficus particularly Ficus opposita, (sandpaper fig).
