South African stinging caterpillar
I’m curious if anyone can identify this South African caterpillar. Found dozens of them happily munching Ligustrum ovalifolium – they’re a very good match to the golden-green leaves. They deliver a really painful sting. About an inch long, some a bit larger.
While we have not identified the exact species, we can tell you that this is a Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae.
