Lily Moth Caterpillar

Dear Vipul,
We started to research your request by searching for colorful caterpillars in India, and we quickly found the Lily Moth Caterpillar,
Polytela gloriosae, on Project Noah.  We then pursued that information to the Insects in Indian Agroecosystems site where it states:  “Feeds mainly on Liliaceae and Amaryllidaceae. Known hosts from India include Amaryllis sp., Gloriosa superba, Crinum asiaticum, Lilium sp., and Zephyranthes sp.”

Location: New Delhi, India

    This should be called the Chinese finger trap caterpillar.
