Sorry Tan, I made a spelling mistake - it is www.bugguide.net, not bugSguide.

Excellent images, just damn curious to find out what it is!

Could it be another type of larvae other than a butterflyor moth from a different type of insect?

Ok, I finally got an ID from a butterfly expert, and the one originally pointed out was correct:

" So for Homodes bracteigutta, the more complete classification from superfamily down would be as follows:

Superfamily Noctuoidea
Family Noctuidae
Subfamily Catocalinae
Tribe (currently unplaced to tribe - see Holloway, J.D., 2005. The Moths of Borneo: Family Noctuidae, subfamily Catocalinae. Malayan Nature Journal 58 (1-4): 1-529.
Genus Homodes
Species bracteigutta (Walker, 1862)

Walker was the chap who described the species in 1862, and gave it the name bracteigutta. His name is placed in brackets (along with the year of publication) in this case as the original combination (generic and specific names, i.e. Philecia bracteigutta) differs from the current combination of Homodes bracteigutta. If the author's name is not in brackets, then the original combination should still be the valid name. However, some publications do not observe this code!

"

Thanks all for the help!
