If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

Someone sent me these pictures of a caterpillar for identification. Closest I can come to is a Vapourer Month, but it doesn't appear to have tussocks of hairs.

It was on a plumb tree. Any help would be appreciated.
