These are the two caterpillar I found at Taipei, Taiwan. Can anybody help me identify the species. The first caterpillar is about 6-7 cm long and the other one 10-12 cm. Thanks in advance!
This is actually not easy - for the first one I am sure that is a caterpillar from order Orgyia and the family Erebidae, but since there is a vast number of different caterpillars on all continents, I am not sure which one it is exactly. If you look at this image (from here), you will see a striking resemblance:
A lot more information on these moths can be found here.
The second one is most likely Trabala vishnou ssp. guttata, see the image (from here) for comparision:
There seems to be very little information available, some on the Wikipedia page.
