    Hi there, does anyone know what species this caterpillar is? It was found last summer on a Knightia excelsa (Rewarewa) plant at the Auckland Botanic Gardens. I’m wanting to know if it is relevant to the K.excelsa or if it was just randomly resting on that plant.

    The closest species I can find is a moth: Morrisonia confusa, and the reason it’s pink is because it’s just about to turn into a moth.

    Thanks in advance!
