Dear Bugman,I was visiting my village in Ramnagar in The Tarai region of Uttrakhand in October this year and found this beautiful catterpillar. I clicked these pictures but this bug was really moving fast so I could not click its full length picture. Please identify this guy. My 11 year daughter is also really interested inknowing more about it.
