not seen this larva before. I don't suppose you kept it to rear through?

cheers,  Roger.

I love wildlife, thus I will not keep it to rear.

We rear not to kill but to understand the biology of the organism in order to protect it.   To begin with, we may need to know what it feeds on.  We may then need to find out the duration of each of its development stages etc.   These foundamental data can help decision makers to work out conservation plan or on a less positive side, to avoid causing damage to its habitat.  

After rearing, one can always release the insect back to the wild.   So taking specimens for rearing is not always a bad thing.

If you love wildlife, then rearing and releasing, as Nadia has pointed out, actually improves humanity's understanding of what that species requires to survive. You can regard rearing as an active form of conservation, rather than passive photography that only documents a species demise if you know nothing of its conservation needs....

To all photographers....
So if you want to really help and make a difference, please do more than taking photos - get a permit from AFCD, start rearing caterpillars and publishing the information you find. There is a new outlet for publishing life history information in Hong Kong, through the Hong Kong Entomologists Society. Only about 10% of Hong Kong's moth species have any decent biological data, so there is plenty of scope to find out more.

cheers, Roger.
