Thanks Sukanya, I think the variegated leaves belong to another plant in close proximity, In the background of the second picture are more flower heads and the correct type of leaves for your Ginger suggestion. The Wiki link only leads to a single species as the rest all come up stating 'page does not exist'.
Mine does however look like the Pineapple Ginger, this picture taken at the same place https://www.alamy.com/stock-image-tapein...
I would agree with Antonio on thus one, it is very like the Light Crimson Underwing which has previously been reported frm that area. May I suggest thay you add this to the Moths of the World Mission, which is run by our very own Jacob Gorneau who started with us as a teenager and has become our representative for the American run Natioal Moth Week which has become global and iccurs in the next few weeks, read more about this elsewhere on thus site. Moths are still a very much inderstudied species, from my own experiences in Spain there wer about 4500 identified species there and possibly as many again still waiting to be identified, partly due to the very tiny size of some specimens making them very difficult to even see. When examining moths and carerpillars it is worth noting the sizes where possible,I often carry a small ruler for this purpose.
Hi Chris and welcome to Project Noah.
I am not familiar with this caterpillar but we have many expert users here who can probably help. Being in the UK it may not be identical to one in the USA but could well be the same family. I have also requested help for you via our Project Noah Worldwide Facebook page which you may request to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/projectn...
