Location

It looks so like our Vapourer caterpillar I never noticed the location, better disregard the ID. Shows it pays to always check the location.

Can I just confirm the location of this sighting please, was it in Thailand.

Yes

It was definitely in Thailand. Looking at the species it is present across Asia but from what I've seen in the last few minutes not generally so far south...
