Lime green is not a common colour for this moth family outside of the tropics. The upright stance is also not common. Some leaves as they die fold inwards along the seam of the main vein. The ratio of living leaf to dead leaf tissue is about 50/50 which may translate to the parent plant discarding the 'solar panel' because the ratio is only going to decay and lose photosynthetic efficiency. This species extends from India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Malaysia east to Indonesia
From a Anglocentric point of view these moths have been dubbed 'slug moths' which is misleading as it is the caterpillar they are referring to. Secondly, the slug is a mollusc with two eye tentacles and two shorter sensory tentacles positioned forward of the eyes. Your average Limacodid moth caterpillar has multiple tubercles (not tentacles) each containing hidden extensible venom-tipped spines. The other dysfunctional common name is 'cup moth'. This again refers to the shape of the pupal cocoon created in the form of a cup by the caterpillar which hardens the silken cup with calcium oxalate produced by special glands. The cup is highly cryptic and rarely encountered by the public and its use as a common name is questionable. As the 'clever' caterpillar seals itself into the cup it makes sure that the jawless adult moth can easily emerge by building a line of weakness into the cap. The caterpillars of most moth families have six functional legs in the thorax area of the body and a number of 'fake' legs (prolegs) toward the rear of the body. Limacodid caterpillars have the head completely withdrawn into the thorax except for a slit where the jaws protrude when feeding. Thoracic legs are reduced and, unlike the rest of Lepidoptera caterpillars, prolegs are absent and replaced by' suckers'
