If you rescue it and rear it to the adult moth, we can determine the species.

Don - thanks, sorry, I went back to look for it this morning and could not find it, or any others like it. Cheers, Jacky

You need to take caterpillars into custody as soon as you find them. They do not have labels on them saying their species. You have to rear them.
