An nusual Caterpillar from NZ
I found this caterpillar whilst trimming some grapevines . I have no idea what it is. I suspect some kind of moth. Hope you can help. Thanks

We were relatively certain we properly identified your caterpillar as an Emperor Gum Moth Caterpillar, Opodiphthera eucalypti, but finding it on a grape vine had us puzzled. Additional research revealed that grape is a host plant as well as eucalyptus.
