Your letter to the bugman: I am very interested to find out what caterpillar this is
How you want your letter signed: From Austin
This stunning caterpillar is a Birdwing Caterpillar, but we cannot say for certain if it is a Cape York Birdwing, our first choice that is pictured on Butterfly House, or if it is the caterpillar of a Cairn’s Birdwing, also pictured on Butterfly House.

At Malanda it would be a Cairns Birdwing for sure – Cape York Birdwings are only found much further north
Thanks for that information.
