Psyche cat. on Cleome rutidosperma:  Found this caterpillar on a Cleome sp., i think, is Cleome rutidosperma. But the flowers are more violet here than my earlier post on the same species where the flowers were blue! Maybe seasonal variation!

Now, as my mentors in this group have taught me to use the name of the taxonomist behind every nomenclature, i find the name DC. ….well. let me read more about DC. …Ah! here it is – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augustin_Pyramus_de_Candolle.
But, who is the caterpillar? More net search tells me that it is a caterpillar of Psyche butterfly and Cleome is their LF plant.
Thanks God, er, EFI, now everything is in order!

On a second thought it appears to me that the caterpillar may not be a Psyche cat. but a Striped Albatross cat. – http://caterpillarclubonline.com/cc-community/butterfly-conservation/activate-cleome.html
