Automeris tridens Central America 

An unusual species with very colourful adult. The larvae will normally feed on Oak or Privet. We are also told they like Forcythia, and it is worth trying other trees and shrubs, including Osier Salix viminalis. Automeris larvae are covered with branched spines which sting like a nettle if you handle or touch them, so beware. They are extremely decorative and huddle together when young.
