Hi Dominik,

While my knowledge of moths is limited, there are numerous online references that feature, or otherwise present, good photos of various butterfly larvae. For the Neotropics, the most useful websites being http://caterpillars.unr.edu/ and http://janzen.sas.upenn.edu/Wadults/searchcat2.lasso. As with adults, a matching caterpillar will be much easier to find if you have an idea where to start.

Best wishes,

Keith

Hi Keith

This was exactly what I was looking for! As you write, searching caterpillars and moths are were tricky where to start, if you have no idea what it could be...
Thanks a lot for your links!

Best regards
Dominik
