Parasa Pastoralis Caterpillar

Parasa pastoralis (迹斑綠刺蛾).

I spotted this caterpillar climbing the south side of Yuelu Mountain (嶽麓山). Last July when were many caterpillars roaming the trails and bear rocks. Now, I have noticed a second wave of parasa larva (both this and other species) out and about.
