Please identify this caterpillar or it may be a slug caterpillar or some kind of saddleback.
Just after rainy season close to Zambezi river at a lodge near Livingstone, Victoria Falls.
We agree that this is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, and we will attempt to make a species identification.
Thank you for your prompt response. I really appreciate it. The little horns flare when the caterpillar is disturbed. It reminds me of the nudibrancs you see under the water if you scuba dive… brilliant.
And is not the common name of a nudibranc a Sea Slug?
