Postby joycecsy » Fri Jun 08, 2012 12:03 pm

Hi there,

I having been trying to find out information on the following 2 species but could not ID it without the images online.

Found in Orchard, *SCAPE

Found in Woodlands, opposite RP

Anyone could help to give some insight on their Common Name, Scientific Name and Family type?

Thank you lots!

Hi Joyce,
Our local common species of the first picture is Asota plana but unable to be specific as the upperside not seen clearly.
The second yellow caterpillar like to be the early instar of Calliteara horsfieldii, posted in this forum in a few places under search :
