It's a young sphingid moth larva (with the tail spike, this is certain), perhaps in the 2nd or maybe 3rd instar.  It's difficult to tell much more than that; rearing it to adult form would have made the ID clear.

Given that the food plant is Parthenocissus dalzielii - s member of the the Vitis (grapevines) and other features, such as the eye spot configuration cf older T. clotho instars, I'd venture that Nadia's guess is very likely indeed!   I reared four specimens in spring of '2013, but did not discover them until they were in final instar.  Except for being a nice leaf green that harmonized well with the wild grape leaves they were munching on. and a shorter tail, the two instars are remarkably similar.  cf http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewthread.php?tid=68593 and http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewthread.php?tid=80618 and also http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewthread.php?tid=80577

without seeing the reared adult, difficult to tell if T. clotho or the more recently described T. tibetiana (more frequently encountered than clotho in HK).
