Stinging Caterpillar from Belize

Hello, Let me start by saying I love your website. I often pull it up and browse through all the new bugs posted. I found a caterpillar in Belize on a jungle hike. It was in the beginning of July and the little guy, about an inch long, was on the ground. I hope you can identify this caterpillar and tell me what it will turn into. … Thanks-

Hi Amber,
Though we don’t know the exact species of your caterpillar, we can tell you it is a Stinging Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, the Slug Caterpillar Moths.
