Friends have had several of these caterpillars at their house. I hadn’t put much effort into identifying it; Usually by the time I got home I had sort of forgotten about it.
Well this morning I found one in the bathroom at our house. It was surrounded by little black pellets, which Tom identified as seeing frequently around the Areca Palms by the pool. So we know we have more of them, and that they are feeding and transforming into butterflies right in our backyard.
It is a tough one to find much info on.
