While taking an early morning walk through the vegetable fields in a village near Marchan Paradise View Resort, I found this caterpillar. Please tell me what kind it is.
This is definitely a Moth Caterpillar and not a Butterfly Caterpillar. It resembles a Tiger Moth in the subfamily Arctiinae, and we found a similar looking North American species on BugGuide identified as being in the new world genus Apantesis. We will post your photo and attempt some additional research.
