Well, in the first place, since it has more than one pair of "prolegs", it cannot be Geometridae.   (see the moth larva ID index at http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewth ... amp;extra=page%3D1)

More llikely, given its posture and general appearance, it is most llikely a Noctuid larva, feeding on citrus, possibly lemon or grapefruit/pomelo.  
Do you remember where you saw it?  Any chance of talking you into attempting to finish rearing it to the moth stage???  At two inches, it probably is near the final instar stage.

nice larva - Noctuoid.

just like shopping in HK - if you see you rear.  Missed rearing opportunity.
So many species for which there is no ecological data known for moth larvae.
