White and green striped caterpillar

Chennai, India


It's been a while since I posted here. It's good to be back!
Can anyone ID these caterpillars?

Seen in Chennai (Madras), Tamil Nadu, South India.

looks to be a type of slug caterpillar. Be careful as it may have a very painful sting.
Maybe Flapdoodle can be of more help

Minot, ND

The overall appearance of these caterpillars appears consistent with the family Limacodidae (cup moths/slug caterpillars), and thus they should be treated with caution until their identity can be confirmed. I regret that I cannot provide a more specific i.d. at this time...
