The two dorsal coloured glands on the penultimate segments put it in Lymantriinae, but it is not one that I recognise.
Can you take it into protective custody and rear it to get the adult moth?

Unwise to touch it. It could be variant of Euproctis edwardsii.

Thanks for the comments Don. It was in the same location this morning, but I hadn't read the above comments then. I'll see if it is still around when I next visit the ANBG. Tim
