Dear Bugman.
Thanking you in advance for your time herein.
We went away to Rust De Winter the weekend of 2 Jan 2016 and took note of an interesting caterpillar.
We have tried doing research on this caterpillar, so that we can learn more about it, but we can`t seem to find much info of this caterpillar.
Would you be able to assist?
Regards, Vicky

Dear Vicky,
We wish you had been able to provide higher resolution files of your lovely images as they are quite degraded when enlarged.  These are Stinging Slug Caterpillars in the family Limacodidae.  We did locate a similar looking image on iSpot, but it is only identified to the family level.
