Very good find, KC. Most likely belonging to the Lexias sp, one of the three Archduke.

This is a young moth in the Limacodidae. Soon Chye, :clap:. Richard, yes, these so-called slug caterpillars are commonly mistaken for those of Adoliadina — please see the following representative examples from Singapore and Malaysia.

Euthalia monina (Malay Baron)
Lexias dirtea or L. pardalis (Black-tipped Archduke or Archduke)
Tanaecia cf. iapis (Horsfield's Baron)
