Tropical yellowish caterpillar - Series #5

This is the fifth series on caterpillars, i.e tropical yellowish (or pale yellow) caterpillar. These caterpillars were found to have infested our Longan tree. At least 11 of those caterpillars were plucked from the Longan leaves and destroyed after the photo shoot.

This specimen of yellowish caterpillar with red head is roughly 2 inches long.
