Can you tell me what type of caterpillar this is?
Hello
My little boy found this great caterpillar. Do you know what type he is and what he likes to eat. Thankyou

Hi Cathou,
We actually tried to identify your mystery caterpillar, but did not get very far since we have no idea where it was found. We believe it is a species of Skipper in the family Hesperidae.

Thankyou for trying. I am in QLD and think we have identified it as a Nymphalide / melanitis leda. I appreciate your reply Cheers

Thanks for the update Cathou. We will link to a site with information on the Common Evening Brown, Melanitis leda.
