Neon Green Caterpillar Fri, May 8, 2009 at 5:35 PM
Hi
I found this caterpillar under a leaf in a forested area near my home. I’ve never seen a neon coloured caterpillar like this before. Could this be a stinging slug caterpillar? I’m pondering as I live in Singapore, and so far all the documentation I’ve read about stinging slugs don’t come from this area of the world. Thanks!

Hi Jeremiah,
This is certainly a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae .  While we are not certain of the species identification, perhaps one of our readers will write in with an answer.
