dear Mr. Bugman
me and my friends had been to trekking and we happened to come across this particular slug.
i was wondering if you could give me a clear idea as to what it exactly is and if the species has been identified .
we found this bug in Kumara parvata, kukke subramanya, karnataka , India
You are correct that this is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, but we are not having much luck with a species identification. Your individual looks similar to, but not exactly like, this Stinging Slug Caterpillar from China on FlickR. It also looks similar to this Wattle Cup Caterpillar, Calcarifera ordinata , that is pictured on the Brisbane Insect Website.
