wow ... this is interesting too. I've not seen one before, and can't even hazard a guess. Let's see if someone else might have an idea. In the meantime, if you do find another one, I'd really encourage you to try to raise it through to the adult stage. For example, there are many, many species of moth for which the caterpillars are unknown!

Is it a Grevillea Looper as I think there is one similar on a sighting recorded at Tura Beach?

Well spotted ... it sure looks the same! And it also matches information on another butterfly resource

It would still be good to raise it through to be really sure ... so if you see another one ....

Hi Sue ... I've just realised that there very good images of this species in Roger Farrow's book 'Insects of South-eastern Australia'. Page 147, if you have access to a copy
