Attractive Caterpillar

January 28, 2010 | Caraça Natural Park, Minas Gerais, Brazil

This caterpillar seems fairly distinctive, but I haven’t been able to find anything similar. The white bands are odd. I can’t decide if they are normal or evidence of an injury.

    Very attractive indeed. Remniscent of a gypsy moth caterpillar – maybe something in the family Lymantriidae?

    Beautiful caterpillar!
    I believe it isan Euglyphis sp. (family Lasiocampidae), and that the white band is its natural color…
