|EDIT - yes I finally found it. This is the caterpillar of the Melanitis leda bankia or Evening Brown butterfly from the family NYMPHALIDAE.|
The butterfly is quite common in Brisbane however this is the first I have seen of its Pupa

HELP PLEASE -
I found this beautiful caterpillar while working in my garden today but despite searching for hours I havent been able to identify it. I would appreciate some advice from anyone who has an idea.
I am in Brisbane Australia.
I hope you enjoy the image too.

A wonderful display of bright colours, prominent black antennas and detail all in one. The fine features of this caterpillar are well displayed in this macro. It was a pleasure to look at this "worm" that was captured with excellency and preciseness. A well deserved smiley and all around thumbs up for great work shared.
