most probably a geometrid member caught from silent valley natioanl park, palghat, kerala, India

 

Chalciope mygdon . Noctuidae, Catocalinae

 

Thank you Ryan Brooks for the ID

Strange beast; all I can say is that it has a mouth and a tail. It moves mouth forward. I have no idea which butterfly or moth it grows into. Do you? I saw this in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha, India in January.

 

Sam2cents: elephant hawkmoth? Thanks for the lead. The colouring is different, though the mouth does look a bit like an elephant's trunk, and it does have coloured patches which mimic a pair of eyes. I read that other species also have false eyes, so this is not a clincher.

Rosa Gamboias, thanks for confirmation that it is a moth caterpillar.

Near Kaziranga National Park in Assam I found a moth hiding in very colourful surroundings. I'm a true dodo at identifying moths, so any help will be gratefully accepted. This is probably the same as one I've seen in Mumbai.
