This little guy and a few of his friends ate up my small palm tree. Didn’t see them under the leaf and hit them with my arm. Arm swelled up and burned.
I just wondering what it is?

Stinging Slug Caterpillar

Dear Troy,
This is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, but we are not certain of the species.  It looks very similar to this image from Master File, but it is only identified to the family level.  Perhaps Cesar Crash who runs Insetologia will recognize it.
