Hi there,
just want to know which butterfly comes out from this bug
Signature: dunno

Spotted Oleander Caterpillar

Spotted Oleander Caterpillar

Dear dunno,
This is a Spotted Oleander Caterpillar,
Empyreuma pugione, and it will eventually metamorphose into a diurnal moth that mimics a wasp, not a butterfly.  See BugGuide for a comparison image.
