Apologies for the quality but I find it really hard to crouch down really low these days. My back and knees complain loudly!
I took this simply because I have never seen a small caterpillar with hairs that were quite so long. I am trying to get an ID but so far all I've managed to do is narrow it down to six hundred species ...
Any help would be appreciated. The body was approx 30mm long.
This is a nice shot of this caterpillar. I sure don't know what kind it is, but considering it is from Australia, I would not touch it!
