Size: ~5cm
Found on viburnum. From the species info page, I gather this one is nearly ready to pupate based on its size. Interestingly, on the same viburnum bush I also saw much smaller caterpillars, presumably at least a couple of instars earlier than this one, and I saw an adult flying on the same day (didn't have my camera with me). I was surprised to see the generations this staggered. I wonder if this will overwinter, or if it will emerge this season.
